I looked in the wiki and only saw how to search the Web. I also saw a 2015 post about how to set variable to currently selected text but it requires to copy the selection and do not want that (mostly because with Alfred I have a way of doing it without having to copy the selected text to the clipboard. Plus, as I know I would these macros at least 50 times a day, I want to spare as many steps as possible).
That typo is actually from the Comments Action created by @kcwhat.
Select the word and use the hotkey to launch the WordReference Search. The Entry variabile and clipboard will clear after use.
Yep, the KM Filter Action is really like a multi-purpose function of mostly unrelated actions.
IMO, the term "Filter" is misleading, as many of its functions are transformations, not filters (as in removing items from a list).
In fact, the first line from the KM Wiki spells this out:
The Filter action is extremely powerful for editing the contents of a variable, clipboard or file.
@kcwhat, I'm not sure what you are complaining about. If it is about the typo, then I'd just forget about it and move on. I never point out typos in a forum like this, but when I was falsely accused of a typo, I simply pointed to the source, no busses involved. If you'll note I did not say anything about the typo in my response to your posting. IAC everyone makes typos, and I'm not going to sweat it when I do.
Gentlemen, I was actually making light of the situation. It's no big deal and I shouldn't have commented on it. Therefore, no apology needed. I learned my dry humor doesn't translate to forum conversation. Like JMTX said, forget about it, move on and make more KM Macros.
Yep. Although we are often funny in person, humor rarely translates well in forums where the only cue we have is dry text. In addition, we have an international membership here, and even regional differences within a country, can make proper interpreting of text difficult, especially humor.
