I am trying to create a macro that will paste a Finder path into the "Go To Folder..." menu after I copy it manually. Very simple and easy. However, the issue I am having is with the program SLACK. Unfortunately Slack will not let a user paste a Finder path starting with a "/" so people have to delete this character when sharing.
Here is what I am trying to do:
I copy a Finder path in Slack or email
Search to see if there is a "/" in the front of the clipboard text
If there is no "/" add it to the clipboard and paste it in the Go To Folder menu.
I just can't figure out how to check the clipboard. I tried to convert the text to a variable, still not working yet.
