Macro for clipboard contents?

#1 Post by Anti-Distinctlyminty » 13.09.2014, 09:01

Hi all,
I was thinking about setting up FC to download some youtube videos to a certain directory by defining a favorite tool.
For example, from a DOS prompt I'll just do this:

Code: Select all

youtube-dl <youtube URL> -o %ActivDir%\desktop\%(title)s.%(ext)s --extract-audio --audio-format mp3
So, a few things came up:
  1. Can I get the current contents of the clipboard? i.e.

    Code: Select all

    %Clipboard%
    or something similar.
  2. These

    Code: Select all

    %(title)s.%(ext)s
    are youtube-dl macros. If FC doesn't recognise them, I'm guess they'll just be passed verbatim?
  3. I couldn't find a list of FC macros (e.g. %ActivDir%). All I could find is this page http://www.freecommander.com/fc_guide_g ... ars_en.htm which says to see the help file, but I press F1, it says the help file isn't found. I downloaded it, but it doesn't seem to work - nothing ever shows in the right side pane.
