I am working on a webpage or two that shows connections between programs using clips and
I cannot get something to work. What I want is either the ^& highlight or clipboard content to
enter into a dialog box. This is the daft state I am into. The ^!Clip referred to below does work.
The ^%ShortOne% shows itself as that in the box, and so does ^$GetClipboard$ whereas I
want the clipboard content itself to appear.
^!Clip "Copy short filename"
^!Set %FileName%=^?[New Outline document name=_^%ShortOne%|Files and Folders|From
Another puzzle is why when I highlight a word within the workings of a clip and is visibly so
the ^& does not show it, even when using or coming from an external clip. Yet put in a
^!Continue box, press No, start the clip again (the word is highlighted still) and bingo it is in
the dialog box as an option. Is there a way within a clip to put its selected word/s into a dialog
box for possible selection?
By the way, this has absorbed hours of hair pulling.
