FARR v2 has some tricks to help you use the clipboard in various ways.
First, you can check the checkbox on the General Options tab to tell FARR to copy any selected text to the clipboard when ever FARR is triggered, for use in commands.

One way is to write %cliptext% in an alias command, which will be replaced with clipboard contents.
Another way is to use $$c in an alias command which will use the $$1 regular expression field IF it exists, or else clipboard if not.
Another way is to specifically type $c in your search string to have it replaced with clipboard text:
