cliptext
« on: August 24, 2008, 08:14:51 PM »
Can anyone explain why this doesn't work:

I want to create a single hotkey for all cliptext relevant aliases (to simplify things). To do this I created an alias called "clip" containing:

define | define %cliptext%
lookup | lookup %cliptext%
search | search %cliptext%
etc.

Then I created a single hotkey that would copy the selected text and enter "clip" into the search box.

As expected, when I press the hotkey, I'm presented with options for define/lookup/search. But when I select one, I get an error saying "Windows cannot find 'define X'..." (where X is the phrase copied to the clipboard)

I was hoping FARR would present me with results from those aliases. Is there a fix?
