How to paste and then select the middle of the output?

I want to paste:

Then have KM to select 00 (in the middle) in order to make it direcly editable.

(it is just a timecode)

So the result would be something like this (to end up anywere in TextEdit or Evernote):

The most likely timecode to change is minutes. So then it is already selected and ready to change.

I found a solution which I am happy with.
If there are other solutions more elegant, yes please feel free to come up with other ways:

You can do this using the %|% token position the cursor, and the Type a Keystroke action to type two shifted-arrow keys to extend the selection.


Wow! Truly elegant! Always something to learn here for me :slight_smile:
