Allow pasting from Alfred Clipboard into Alfred Prompt

Recommended Posts

I'd love to be able touse the Alfred Clipboard History when typing into the Alfred Prompt.

 

Oftentimes I want to paste a value I copied a couple of "copy"-actions ago, instead of the latest one, into the Alfred prompt.

 

Here's a typical use case:

 

  - I copy text I want to search for using a custom web search (say, a jira issue key)

  - I do some other work, copy a piece of code, etc.

  - then I want to use my Jira custom Web Search

  - I open the Alfred Prompt

  - I type in my custom web search prefix ("jira ")

  - I open the Alfred Clipboard History, and trigger the proper history entry for my jira issue key

  - Instead of going back to the Alfred Prompt, with my jira issue key completed, my Jira issue key gets pasted in the frontmost app

More AppleScripting terminology would facilitate this and allow implementing this feature through a workflow.  For example, being able to reference the text currently input into the search bar.
