use highlighted text as input argument in a workflow

Recommended Posts

Say I have some text highlighted, what do I need to do to use that text as an argument in my workflow?


The easiest way is to use a hotkey; in the workflow, add a new Trigger > Hotkey. In the hotkey's settings, change the 'Argument' to 'Selection in OS X'. Connect this hotkey to a workflow action (e.g. a Run Script object). Then, whenever you press the hotkey you chose, the selected text will be injected into the workflow.


Cheers :)
