Search highlighted term in specific website field?

This extension has saved me a lot of time. It creates an option in the double click menu that when pressed opens a new tab with the highlighted text already populated in and searches it right a way. This is obviously much faster than opening a new tab, finding the right search field, and typing in your query.

If my wording wasn't clear here's a visualization of how the extension works.

Is there anyway to create a macro that does the same thing? I don't need a double click menu, a regular trigger would be fine.

Yes, very easy.
Just replace the text in the magenta-colored Action with the search string for the search service you want to use.

Let us know if this works for you.

Thanks, Could you possibly elaborate on how I might retrieve this. I am unfamiliar with the term search string in this context.

My best guess was the url with the equals sign and everything before it and that didn't work

This is the base URL that you would use to manually do a search using the search engine of your choice. So, for a Google search, it is:
http://www.google.com/search?q=

I've never used the LinkedIn Sales Navigator, but some quick testing yielded this search string:
https://www.linkedin.com/search/results/all/?keywords=

Replace the text in this Action:
image

with
https://www.linkedin.com/search/results/all/?keywords=

That worked for me when I just tested it.

There may be other (better?) parameters to use. To investigate, do a manual search in the Sales Navigator, and examine the URL it produces.

Does that work for you?
