Can Maestro auto copy highlight text?

Hello guys,
i dont know if this right place to post my question.
anyone know how to make keyboard mastro macro automatic copy text i highlight ?
most time i highlight and press command+c
but i think they should be a way keyboard mastro can make the work easy by highlighting the text and it auto copy… any help will be greatful

This is the macro I use. It involves holding and releasing the Control key, and so is not quite automatic, but it is still quicker than pressing Command+C. You will also need to change the device to your mouse. If there is a better way of doing this, I would love to know.

Keyboard Maestro 8.1.1 “Copy Anywhere” Macro

Short answer: No

But you can assign a hotkey that will copy highlighted text/images and then process that however you like.

Just use the Copy action (KM Wiki).

This is preferred over just using a Type Keystroke of “⌘C” because the KM Copy action will wait for the copy to be completed, whereas the ⌘C will return immediately.
