Copy to Clipboard Output

Using this output will copy the contents passed by your workflow to the clipboard. You can output the following:

  • Free text typed into the Copy to Clipboard Output configuration
  • {query} to copy the argument passed into the output
  • {time}, {date} for the time and date
  • {cursor} to position the cursor somewhere other than the end of the pasted text
  • {clipboard} and clipboard offsets (e.g. {clipboard:2}) to paste current and past clipboard content

Use the button with the curly brackets in the bottom left of the text field to quickly add example formatting for date, time, clipboard content and more. Take a look at the Dynamic Placeholders page for more details.
