➽Keyboard Maestro Variables: Remember Current Application

I was recently wasting some time playing with an idea. I wanted an easy and quick way to grab some text in any arbitrary application and pop over to MultiMarkdown Composer to do some editing. I also wanted a way to pop the text back into the original app when I was done.

Well, there’s an easy way to do this with Keyboard Maestro and it involves a bit of variable magic. So why not learn a little something about my favorite macro application?

This solution is two separate macros. The first macro grabs the text and the name of the application. The second macro takes the edited text and returns to the original app for insertion.
