Problem running shell scripts

I have a problem executing a shell script.

Below is a screenshot (Point 1 is working, Point 2 is not working as a text shell, and also as a file).

But when I run this script (2) in the terminal, it works well. What is wrong?

First, have you read the KM wiki page about executing shell scripts here action:Execute a Shell Script [Keyboard Maestro Wiki] ?

If you have then you’ll know that KM executes scripts in a non-interactive shell whose default path is very different to the one you’ll encounter in Terminal.

Next, there are loads of pitfalls when executing shell scripts in KM which even a cursory search of the forum readily reveals. Consequently it is impossible to say for sure what your problem might be without actually having a copy of the macro (not just a screen grab) you are having issues with.

Anyway, my guess would be a problem with the path.

It would be worth a few minutes of your time to review these:

Since I’m not at my Mac I can’t offer much further assistance, but hopefully you can post your macro and someone else will jump in!

for example you haven't provided the full path to the pandoc executable on your system.
