Hi, fellow Automators.
I am trying to create a voice-triggered Siri Shortcut that will expand TextExpander snippets in a new document in the Drafts app. I cannot just copy the expanded snippet to the clipboard, because some of the snippets have user Fill-ins.
Ideally, the Shortcut would allow me to select multiple snippets from a list, and then expand each snippet sequentially in the same Draft document. However, for now, I’ll just be happy to get a voice-triggered Siri Shortcut to expand a single snippet.
I have Launch Center Pro, which offers an in-app purchase that will allow execution of an action using a voice-triggered Siri Shortcut, and I’m not opposed to paying for that feature if needed to accomplish my goal.
I have searched for the x-callback-url scheme for TextExpander 4, but all I could find was a 2015 blog post with limited documentation on x-callback-url support in TextExpander 3.5 (the legacy version of the app).
I was unable to make the URL scheme work with TextExpander 4. The failure may be my incorrect use of URL scheme or incompatibility of URL scheme with the new version. I have requested documentation on the x-callback-url scheme for TextExpander 4 from the developer, but I have not yet gotten a response.
Does anyone have a solution or suggestions for new ideas of how to approach the problem?
Thanks for your help, Friends!
