"Insert text by..." Pop-up menu grayed out

I'm trying to make a macro for Obsidian that:

  1. Executes a Right-Click (to pull up the context menu)
  2. Delays long enough for the menu to appear
  3. "Types" an E to highlight the Edit Link menu item.

Steps one and two work, but nothing happens for step three. I've used the "Insert/Type/Paste Custom Text" action, and "Insert text by pasting" is selected –however the pop-up menu is grayed out. I thought I'd try to change it to "by typing" in case that's what Obsidian wants, but since the menu is grayed out, I can’t do that.

Any idea why it's grayed out?

I'm using the current Setapp version on an M1 MacBook Air.

Thanks,
Russell

Do you maybe have selected rich text? Typing only works for plain text:

However for your use case the "Trigger Context Menu Item" action might work better. Or alternatively try to just send that key using the keyboard shortcut action:

That helped. Thanks!
