-In the displayed macro, the action uses the [[token:​SystemClipboard|%SystemClipboard%]] token to read the system clipboard, and will then insert it by typing (rather than the normal pasting for the System Clipboard). ​ This can be useful for cases where you are disallowed from pasting for some reason.
