hey folks, forgive me if i've overlooked something, ...
Looking for a way to have a permanent clipboard that never goes away, ACTUALLY, really what would be better if i could have it saved as a file.
That may work with text, but the specific item i am looking to produce on command, out of thin air, is Action cells in the Keyboard Maestro Editor.
For example, i hit a key and it immediately adds a "speak text" with a certain voice selected, and certain settings picked in the pop-up menus. This can be produced instantly if it's on a clipboard, but i imagine it would be much better to keep it saved to a file. Can't figure out how to actually VIEW the actual clipboard contents as data so I can figure out what the clipboard actually contains when it contains a kbm action cell.
I've done this just by keeping the clipboards hanging around, but the clipboards become unruly sometimes and can be a cause of slowdown, so i feel it's better to keep it saved to a file, if i want to produce KM action cells out of thin air. but yeah, can't figure out how to get that to a file. when i try to do it, it just reproduces the textual title of the action. whereas if i actually copy it from kbm editor, then paste it, then it's fine.
Was looking at the clipboards plist file in hopes to find a raw xml version of what is currently on the clipboards. .... I thought that would be the answer! but for some reason i'm not seeing newly created clipboards on that list.
hopefully this makes sense ....
