I'm trying to create a variable that I could use to increment a given number with a button so I could create incremented ID when I write documents without worrying about where I am in the count.
For now I've been able to create a variable with user input via apple script and I can also add 1 to that variable at the end but I can't figure how to insert it as text (preferably write and not paste)
Does anyone have any clues?
Ah that would be a good addition to the "Paste Text" action. I'll add a way to select variables there.
I just found this
tell application "BetterTouchTool"
set_persistent_number_variable "variableName" to 12345
It would be nice if we could use that variable in the Insert / Type / Paste Custom Text action like we can use the date&time
How can I tell another Apple Script widget to use that variable?
Do you have any update on that feature?
In v3.03 it's now possible to use the variables in the "insert / type / paste custom text" action
There will be more soon.
