This thing I made "should" work.

Sorry for blowing up the boards. So I put together a shortcut that takes the selected text and searches DuckDuckGo. I feel like what I put together should work, but something is preventing the pasting of the text into the search bar.

Also, I know that there exists an action that does exactly this. I can't find any way to change the search engine. If the action targeted the system's default engine, it would cover them all.

Oh and, to avoid making a new thread, I was hoping to make the shortcut control+option+command+spacebar, but it looks like shortcuts with the spacebar can only have two modifier keys. Is using more modifier keys something that is possible?
