Generate Shortcut from Text

Turn the text form of a shortcut back into a shortcut, and import it.


This shortcut is a companion to Store Shortcut as Text. The actions in this shortcut are those needed to turn the output of that shortcut back into the input you originally gave. That said, it’s important to note that for some reason, Magic variables sometimes don’t fill in the way you’d expect. So you may have to design around that. I have no idea why it does that.

This shortcut is based on the work of @robric18.

This version adds support for Store Shortcut as Text (1.1). It’s still compatible with version 1.0 as well.
Store Shortcut as Text 1.1 adds a “Get text from input” action that now let’s you simply paste the shortcut-as-text like any other text. Thanks to @Saha_ for this suggestion.
