Shortcuts - Insert Text

How can I combined Shortcuts (text output) and Drafts Insert action to insert text from Shortcuts into a draft at a specific point?

I have a Shortcut that outputs specific text that I need to have inserted into a draft at a mouse cursor position. Do I create a specific Drafts Action with “Insert Text” action and add that into Drafts Shortcuts “Run Action on Draft” shortcut?

Call the Shortcut using the run shortcut action step and have it return the text to Drafts (output of the shortcut).

Use the [[shortcut_result]] template tag in your insert text action step to insert at the current cursor position.

See the documentation for details.

Thank you.

[[shortcut_result]] and enabling wait for a response were the two keys that I was missing.
