I have a trigger set up on my Mac that allows me to prepend text to a specific text file, which is synced via Dropbox. This makes it super easy for me to take notes on my Mac then access them on my iPhone. However the notes app that I've been using on my phone has recently gone loopy, so I'm thinking of moving all my notes over to the native MacOS Notes.app. But since I'll no longer be working with plain text files I won't be able to use the basic prepend text functionality in Quicksilver anymore. Any ideas about how I can quickly prepend text to a Notes.app note using a Quicksilver trigger?

If you can figure out how to do it via AppleScript, you can create a custom QS action that takes the text as input.

See the wiki for examples.
