Typing Text To Clipboard

Hi,

 

after two weeks of evaluation, I already have 40+ macros.

Think I'm going to purchase this great piece of software soon. :-)

 

This might be an easy question, but anyway:

 

I want to type some lines of text including new lines to the clipboard so that I later can paste the whole text block. This is what I tried:

 

Clipboard Start Copy

If Variable %T1% <> ""

Text Type: %T1%<ENTER>

If Variable %T2% <> ""

Text Type: %T2%<ENTER>

End If

Else

Text Type: %T3%<ENTER>

End If

...

Clipboard End Copy

 

As you may have expected I end up with the direct editor code in the clipboard.

Instead, I want just the typed text to be there. How do I do this?

 

Must I use string variables? And if so, how do I add carriage return and line feed?

 

Thanks.

 

Regards

Welcome duebel13,

 

You must first set your Variables...

 

// Copy to clipboard and set clipboard text to variables
Clipboard Copy
Variable Set String %T1% from Clipboard
Clipboard Copy
Variable Set String %T2% from Clipboard
// Past Variables into text
Text Type: %T1%<ENTER>
Text Type: %T2%<ENTER>

Hi,

I think this is closer to what you want; easier to do your logic with strings and just save the modified string to the clipboard.

Your logic reads this way; is it what you wanted?

Best, Randall

If Variable %T1% <> ""

  Variable Modify String: Copy %T1% to %T99%

//don't need if here if logic does not?

    Variable Modify String: Append %T2% to %T99%

    Variable Modify String: Save %T99% to Clipboard

Else

  Variable Modify String: Save %T3% to Clipboard

End If

<IFVAR2:1:01:2:><TMVAR2:09:99:01:000:000:><TMVAR2:08:99:02:000:000:><TMVAR2:16:99:00:000:000:><ELSE><TMVAR2:16:03:00:000:000:><ENDIF>

(EDIT -woops, i still had your logic wrong? - changed)

Just a quick note or two about the Clipboard Start/End Copy construct:

  • The only command allowed between the Start and End is Text Type.
  • No mnemonics (<Enter>, <Tab>, etc) are allowed. Enter them directly using the keyboard.
