How difficult is it to create in Automator (either AppleScript or Javascript) something like this?

enter image description here

I would like to have a groceries list.

And only the selected items to be copied in clipboard line by line so I can paste them in my list in notes.

    Why not just use Notes, which has a checklist format, for your groceries list? – user3439894 May 2 at 17:40

Not with Automator

This is not possible using only Automator and an Open Scripting Architecture (OSA) language. Automator is not intended to present arbitrary user interfaces.


An alternative approach would be to create an Objective-C/AppleScript application, or a local web page and JavaScript.

There appear to be third party tools, such as Dialog Maker, that may help.
