I am making a macro where I need to check if clipboard has changed after I press cmd + c.
How can I do it?
I am thinking of something like this but not sure if that is the best way and I am still not sure how to reference variables.
Is this a good way to do it?
Thank you for any help.
I used to use a similar method, until I discovered:
function:CLIPBOARDSEED [Keyboard Maestro Wiki]
I now think this is the best method to use.
I just posted an example macro showing how to use this:
To not forget the obvious: there is also a macro trigger for clipboard changes:
Good point, Tom. But that is NOT a choice you can use within a macro to determine if the user has made a selection before the COPY command.
Yes, Michael, that’s clear. But from the OP it’s not entirely clear to me, wether the test has to be done within a macro, or if a standalone test serves as well —or better.
WTF? How am I just hearing about this? I've read lots of discussions on the subject of how to know when a COPY has finished, and I've never seen this mentioned.
So this appears to work:
And thanks, BTW.
To paraphrase an old, sexist saying:

Sorry ladies, no offense intended, but feel free to insult me. That was an expression from my much, much younger days, which no longer applies.
