How to use Automator to create a text file from Clipboard

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

  1. To avoid having to change the name each time just add a couple of File&Folders:Rename Finder Items. In the first change the ‘Format’ to ‘Month Day Year’ and in the second one ‘Hour Minute Second’. That will make the file name be something like “Untitled 1/22/2019-11/27/4.rtf”. There is no chance of a name collision.

    This works well with the 2 apps multi-clipboard apps we make called CopyPaste and Essential.

    Good idea. Thanks,
