Automatically paste to frontmost app not working in workflow (ChatFred)

Recommended Posts


I just added the "automatically paste to frontmost app" functionality to the "Copy to clipboard" step of the ChatFred (1.3.3) workflow. For some reason, it is not working. I debugged it and checked how it works in other workflows but I still could not figure out what I did wrong. Maybe someone can help? Thanks a lot in advance!

Do you have in the workflow a preceding dialog, after the initial identification of the "frontmost app”, which steals the focus? I experienced that problem and had to work around it in my rather crude Find and replace line feeds or tabs workflow. It's nowhere near as sophisticated as yours but it does include two Automation Tasks to work around the problem (Identify Frontmost App and then, later in the workflow, Open Apps). Here's a link to the GitHub download for the workflow just in case it's any help at all.
