Imprinter and Clipboard placeholder?

Hi there,

I’m trying to figure out how to include a clipboard placeholder in the Imprinter. I would like to include the confirmation # for paid statements.

Is this possible?

Thank you!

Placeholders can be inserted via the contextual menu’s Insert Placeholder submenu but automation should usually not depend on things like the clipboard as the results might be unexpected.
