Am I missing something basic? I don’t see any way to get the current clipboard contents in a plugin.
Not yet, though for text of course you can have the user paste into a textfield and auto-detect the added text to streamline the interaction flow.
If not text, what type of content are you looking to read from the clipboard?
Yes, just text.
I did think of the auto-detection, but that seemed somewhat less than ideal in terms of the UX.
Any chance we could get an API for clipboard content detection and content capture?
