In the Importer Clipboard Settings we could do this:


clipboard import

Now select the text in your email and copy to the clipboard.


Then open ArmTracker and press the [F8] function key to import clipboard.


What this does is search for the text you enter in the clipboard settings and assigns it to the appropriate field in ArmTracker.


In our example the email received has the City/State/Zip/Country all combined into the "Location" field so we just insert it into the City field in ArmTracker and manually fix this after importing.
