Keyboard Maestro “Insert text by pasting” Quick Tip

“Insert text by pasting” is faster than “Insert text by typing” (which is rarely necessary in my experience).

Unfortunately, using the paste method results in unwanted junk in your clipboard (unless of course this is also your intention). You can insert by pasting without having it store the text into your clipboard by adding a “Delete Past Clipboard” action just after the insert. Despite the name of the action, this will only remove the last item from your clipboard (not the entire contents of the clipboard).
