[Key] Clip Reserved Characters

Postby johnturnbull » Wed Jul 12, 2017 12:51 pm

You can send clips to an application via the keyboard buffer rather than the clipboard by preceding the clip text with [Key] For example...

[Key] Hello

In [Key] clips, the character * is reserved for repeating keys. Example...
[Key] Left * 4

and the + character is reserved for indicating that the Ctrl or Alt key is down. Example...
[Key] Ctrl + Alt + a

The reserved characters cannot themselves be sent to an application.
