How do you alter text by either appending or prepending?

I’d like to be able to modify some text and say an exclamation point to the end of it, Or wrap text in quotation marks, an idea of the best way of doing this?


  • Your original text is in a variable from a prior step or the input to the shortcut.
  • Add a text action and add in your variable inline with your prepended/appended text.
  • The output of that text action is your modified text.


That was my plan, my issue is step 2, which specific shortcut action do I use?

As noted, since you are concatenating text the Text action would be the most suitable.

Thank you, now I see it, your first answer explained it perfectly, but sometimes we have to say things in different ways for it to sync in.

Makes perfect sense.
