Stop and Output
Stops execution of the current shortcut, and outputs content. This action is useful when: • Running a shortcut from another shortcut (using the Run Shortcut action). The output will be used as the output of the Run Shortcut action. • Running a shortcut from Quick Actions in Finder on macOS. The output will be saved as a file alongside the files selected in Finder. • Running a shortcut from Services on macOS. The output will replace the selected content, if applicable. • Or, when running a shortcut from another location that supports output, like the command-line or the Shortcuts URL scheme. No more actions will be run after this action.
