Hotkey trigger Clears Clipboard

Recommended Posts

When i use Hotkey trigger and choose the Argument "Selection in macOS"

It passes the selected text to next action - which is great! that's what i want.


But then i want to be able to past the clipboard content to input in that workflow,

but i can't, because the clipboard content becomes the selected text.


How can i pass the selected text without loosing the clipboard content?

@Benben There is an option to restore clipboard content to the bottom left of Alfred's Advanced preferences:

But if you want the contents of this within your workflow, you may need to add a short delay after the hotkey object to wait a moment for the clipboard content to be restored. Just have a play with this.
