Text (URL) copy - alter text (URL) - past text (URL)


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I want to create a workflow that

  1. copies a selected text (URL)
  2. alters this text (URL) - add a character at a specific location. (after the 16th character add a dash - )
  3. pasts the altered text (URL)

 

Do you have any suggestions for me, how to do this with workflows?

Universal Action Trigger or Hotkey Trigger with Argument set to Selection in macOS.

Replace Utility set to “Replace regex (.{16})(.*) with $1-$2”.

Copy to Clipboard Output (check Automatically paste to frontmost app).

Hi!
Thanks so much. This works.

 

I just want to make it more effective for me by adding the following before/after:

  1. Keystroke CMD+L (activate URL in Browser)
  2. Copy the selection to clipboard
  3. do the string replacement with your regex
  4. Paste from clipboard
  5. Keystroke ENTER (to load the new url)
