Hi all. I’ve built a shortcut that mostly takes a lot of steps to create a URL for one of two apps (Tot and NotePlan 2) depending on the input. Once the URL is built, I want Shortcuts to use it to open the correct app.
noteplan:// URLs work — I’ve tested them from a browser, and also I can get the shortcut to run and execute one URL. However, once that URL is done, I stay in Tot or NotePlan, I don’t go back to Shortcuts.
If I open Shortcuts manually, it’s clear the shortcut is still running (though there are no more steps). This is weird, but works if I’m just creating and running a single URL.
But of course I want to do several at once (using text input that’s split into lines). Now the first URL gets built and executed, but I still get stuck at the receiving app (Tot or Noteplan). If I manually return to Shortcuts, it processes the next URL and sends me to the appropriate app, where I get stuck until I return to Shortcuts manually.
I’ve tried using the
Open URL shortcut step and the
Open __ with x-callback step (with various settings for the latter). Same behavior every time.
Clearly I’m missing something. Or is this the expected behavior? Help!
