Embedding clipboard in a drop down menu

Hi everybody, I hope you are fine!

I use Text Blaze on LinkedIN.

I want to embed the clipboard command in a drop down menu. It should look like the following:

{formmenu: default=aus Köln; aus Ehrenfeld; nach {clipboard}; name=City; multiple=no}

But it's not working. Do you have a recommendation to realize this idea?

Thank you and keep up your helpful work!


Hi @holger.eisenmann Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

Try this out:

{formmenu: default=aus Köln; aus Ehrenfeld; nach {clipboard}; name=City; multiple=no}

It works for me. Let me know if it works for you.

Update: I just realized that this is the same as what you have posted. So I am not sure why it does not work for you. Can you share a screenshot of the error you see?

Thank you for your hint! Now I found the bug: The editor added backslashes at the beginning and the end of the embedding. When I cancelled them, the code worked! :slight_smile: Thank you for helping!

Glad it works now :slightly_smiling_face:

Oh and one tip: if you enable the advanced editor in the formmenu (using the yellow lightning icon), then you will get a nice popup (on the left) showing all the commands that you can put there:


Clipboard is one of them. So instead of manually fiddling with the code, you use the point and click UI to easily get what you need :smiley:

Thank you Gaurang! But where do I start the advanced editor? There is no yellow icon?! :-/ Do you have a link or a hint for me? Tahank you once more!


Ah - now I found it! It's not in the pop-up - it' in the menu on the right! Sorry!

No worries. Yeah, I am not sure why it's not in the popup. We'll check this internally, thanks!
