I am trying to set a macro up to do quick searches in Google Translate. The issue is that, once the box opens to enter the search, I command the macro to paste using "command v" but the macro does not paste. Is this some sort of recursive no-no to have paste into a box created by the macro itself?
Yes, that approach is more to the point. Thanks... However...
Interestingly... when I highlight text, and type Command-T, I see that multiple words in English and Chinese get brought into the clipboard well enough. However, I am getting the following results.
Highlight a single English word ==> Command T ==> Works as expected. The word is thrown into the translation field and the URL is executed.
Highlight a single Chinese Character ==> Command T ==> Clipboard copied, but URL command does not execute.
Highlight multiple English words ==> Command T ==> Clipboard copied, but URL command does not execute.
I am not sure if there is an issue with the spaces (%20), or double byte characters, or what. I would think you could throw anything into the Google Translate text box and it would try and translate it (at least come back with something) but it does not seem that the macro even gets that far as I am not seeing any no URL call within the browser.
