tldr: Is there a way to do a "sed" on the clipboard content?
I'm currently facing a problem with the books app from Apple.
When I'm doing copy&paste of any text inside a book, the app always adds quotation marks and some attribution information
For example, I select and copy:
Then I get on pasting:
Excerpt from blablabla
This is very frustrating and I would like to get rid of these additions.
Somebody wrote a blogpost about removing the citation stuff using Automator, which would do what I'm looking for. I would like to tie this functionality to one specific app (Books) and one specific Keyboard Shortcut (CMD+c)
So it would be really cool if I could do it in BTT. I found out I could run a shell script when a specific shortcut is pressed.
The information I'm missing is: how I can access the latest entry in the clipboard and pipe it to the shell?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks
