Helping Hand (3/5)



  1. Let me insist with this topic Someone may say that the Copy to clipboard action is what I could use.. since there is a template 'Clipboard > Paste as plain text / text clip from hotkey' But it's inaccurate. Because even when this action can paste a text on any app, it comes from a copy to clipboard action that replaces your current clipboard value What I'm asking is a straightforward action to type the text or keystrokes.
  2. It will be great if workflows have a Send keystrokes as an output action, to simulate key pressing. This can facilitate workflows that acts as macros or autocompletion Right now, when I need to return (write, keypress) certain value I must use this osascript tell application "System Events" key down return keystroke "output value: " keystroke "{query}" end tell But this solution isn't so elegant and tends for lag. I know that modern text editor used to have this kind of features; but a keystroke action provides a generic & direct tool to control the system. You may agree that sometimes the Automator can't reach your desired option. Another output action can simulate mouse actions. This tool can simulate different type of mouse actions: clicks, drags, movements, etc http://www.bluem.net/jump/cliclick/ Currently I'm using this tools to automate repetitive task like - Replace/filter strings - Type down values (for keyboard keys) - Take screenshots of the screen around the cursor I hope that some of this stuff make sense for you.
