      Instead it just puts its text out, failing to translate the built in
      variables.

      What have I missed?

      Hi Roger,

      I played with this for a few minutes, with only that single line in the
      clip and found that, if you precede the text line with any kind of Clip
      command or function the output will look as you expect, including the
      quotes.

      Example below;

      h="test"
      ^!SetScreenUpdate 1
      "XXXXXX^%space%YYYYYY^%nl%ZZZZZZ"

      gives you;

      "XXXXXX YYYYYY
      ZZZZZZ"


      It's as if you need a primer to kick it into Clip translation mode. I
      don't know why this line doesn't work.

      h="test"
      "XXXXXX^%space%YYYYYY^%nl%ZZZZZZ"
