  1. I'm trying to call a service which takes the selection as the input. However, I'm not able to send the input to it directly since it is a 3rd-party Service and no open API found. I know how to bring selected text into a workflow. But what I need is the reverse process. Is that possible to manipulate the selection?
  2. Hi all! I made a workflow for making changes in place to the selected text, via hotkeys. I demo the main behaviors in a screencast here. You can download this version of the workflow from dropbox here. (I'll get its github repository up to date shortly.) It requires python, but it's just using fairly standard modules: argparse, re, os, functools, and subprocess. Thanks for your help, everybody!
  3. I tried to find it, but couldn't. I sometimes rely on my memory of text more then my numerous hotkeys, so in a workflow like "call a selected number on my iphone" I would love to have this workflow : Select a phone number on a webpage Launch Alfred with the default hotkey Write "Call on iphone" and have the workflow pick up the selected text, and pass it as {query} onwards to my workflows This could be so awesome!
