Process text selection

A special block that awaits text selected for processing from within another app.

The fiber will pause until a flow has been chosen to process a text selection. On Android 6 it’s usually done by selecting text and choosing Automate flow in the overflow menu of the “cut, copy & paste“ popup.

If the selected text is replaceable (editable) the SET path is executed, which must include a Process text set block to complete the process. The OK path is executed if the selected text is read-only so it can’t be replaced, or the SET path is unconnected.

Note! This feature require an Android 6+ device. May not work on Android 8 due to bugs in that version.
