About

My name is Bakari Chavanu, and I’m a freelance writer and long-time user of Apple computers and software. One of the topics I write about on a regular basis is automating tasks using Apple and third-party software, such as Apple‘s Automator, QuicKeys, Keyboard Maestro, Hazel, and the smart folder technology include in Mac OS X.

I welcome your questions and feedback.

    • Thanks for sharing this. I don’t have appoints, but I will peruse the AppleScript. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi Bakari,

    You seem to be an expert in this area, so maybe you can help me with something that I’ve not had since back when I used KeyQuencer (which I don’t think made the transition from OS9 to 10). I want to find a way, after selecting some text, to swap the selection with whatever is on the clipboard. (I do not want to deal with multiple clipboards, just the normal system clipboard.) Everyone needs to swap text at times!

    Is there a utility that can do this?

    • I Doug, sorry I’m just writing back. If I understand you correctly, you should be able to select text in a text field, hit Command+V and it will write over that selected text with whatever’s on the clipboard. So you wouldn’t need QuicKeys to accomplish that. Let me know if that helps.
