I just installed Keyboard Maestro. I'm trying to create a calendar event linked to a task in Things app.
First I select menu via "Items -> Share -> Copy Text" and there should be the title of the text in the clipboard. So I get that and assign it to a variable named "TaskName".
I select "Copy Link" menu and do the similar to assign it to a variable "TaskLink".
And I create a calendar event based on the two variables.
However I don't have the correct values in the variables. And it seems to be a little random.
Do you see any problem here?
I appreciate any advice. Thank you.
There's a macro that might help with that:
A single keystroke (I happen to use ⌘⌥M) to copy selected items as Markdown links from a variety of browsers and other applications.
This is a working draft of a group containing a main macro and a number of supporting sub-macros:
A main macro defining a single keystroke for use in a variety of different applications: Copy as Markdown link
various sub-macros (not stand-alone - they are called by the main one) with the bundle identifier names of specific apps.
The main macro:
can get MD li…
but when I literally cmd+c in Things app, it correctly copies the title of the task in the clipboard.
So copying itself isn't a problem, IMO.
It's more like the steps afterwards, but I'm not sure how to debug it.
