i'm not completely sure what solutions are being recommended here to fix this issue. Maybe i should expand a little...
So, what i'm ultimately trying to do is clean out my Gmail that has thousands too many messages (i have about 10 accounts that all come in to my Gmail account.) To clean things up, i usually do a search in the Inbox for an email address sending me lots of email. The string i'd type/paste into the search box is this: "label:inbox @hubspot.com" That might pull up 50 emails from one account that i can delete all at once. See attached.
What I want to do is find an emailer, copy their address, place my cursor in the search box and type ";li" to get it to type the filter text (label:inbox) + paste the email address that i've copied to the clipboard.
The Assistant says the shortcut is firing but when i type ";li" nothing happens. The ;li isn't deleted, the "label:inbox" isn't typed, and nothing is pasted. The ;li just sits there doing nothing. But, again, when i type ;li, KM says that it triggered. See the screenshots attached.
--> NOTE that i am able to manually copy/paste the address i copied into the search field BUT when i look at the Clipboards in KM Preferences, the address isn't there. Not sure if it's supposed to be.
i should also note that i imported some keyboard shortcuts that another KM user exported and shared that included text shortcuts. This was before i tried to create my own basic one—her's are more complicated—and hers didn't work either. Same problem. Nothing happens.
Finally, i've taken the clipboard variable out of the equation and just made the macro a basic text replace. Still, when i type ;li <---- like right there...KM says it triggered but nothing happens.
It occurs to me to mention that i used to have TextExpander installed but stopped paying for it and stopped using it. It's still on my hard drive but not running. Perhaps there's a conflict? i don't want to delete it yet because there are some old macros that i'd like to put into KM if i can ever get it to work!
