Keyboard Maestro 8.2.4 “BETA DANGER - ChangeContents” Macro

WARNING - This is not officially TESTED and it modifies CLIPBOARDS, VARIABLES and FILES so it's DANGEROUS. Use at your own risk. But it probably won't do any "damage" as long as you don't try to "save" anything.

Anyway, I needed a utility to let me edit KM variables in a variety of ways. So a few weeks ago I just decided to create this editor. It's not the kind of editor that you may be thinking of. It's more of a set of utilities that can be used to process variables, files or clipboards. In my case I needed to do things like sort some of my variables and this helped me to do that.

It met my needs. But it probably could be enhanced to be a more useful utility. Some of the KM gurus may come up with ways to enhance it.

Last time I tested it, it was working fine. I removed some disabled actions which hopefully didn't cause anything to break.

LAST WARNING - don't use this if you don't have backups of your data. And don't use it to edit macOS files unless you have backups of those too.

I'm not sure what to call it. I was tempted to call it an "editor" but it's not really a generous purpose editor. So for now I settled on "ChangeContents."
