[tip] paste command + %cliptext%
« on: August 15, 2007, 05:16:04 AM »
the paste command is really nice...

for example you can create the bbcode alias (just call the alias bbcode, no regex...)
with the following result :

paste [quote]%cliptext%[/quote]
paste [url]http://%cliptext%[/url]
paste [b]%cliptext%[/b]
paste [i]%cliptext%[/i]

handy :
invoke FARR with the autocopy
type "bbocde quo"
press enter
that's it you selected text is now surrounded by
[quote][/quote]

@mouser, i did not manage to get the clipboard content in the result display
[i]%cliptext%[/i] | paste [i]%cliptext%[/i]
the first %cliptext% does not show

can i use the %cliptext% keyword in turn with the $$1 keyword in an alias? i mean if there is text in the clipboard, then %cliptext% is used but if i typed something then $$1 takes preference.

e.g. to search IMDB, the following contains $$1 as default but i'm looking for a way to merge both keywords.

IMDB - $$1[or %cliptext%] | http://www.imdb.com/find?q=$$1[or %cliptext%] /ICON=icons\imdb.ico

i think $$a was made for this -- uses $$1 if provided, or cliptext if not.

it's $$c as lanux points out below.
