Is there a way to activate a macro based on a clipboard even

Is there a way to activate a macro based on a clipboard event, instead of using a Hotkey? I was shown in another post how to perform an action when clipboard text is matched, but this requires the macro to always be running.

For example, can I make a macro run when I highlight ax1 and ctrl-c?

SOMETHING needs to be always running in order to monitor the clipboard. So you could do it with a macro that loops, or you could write a custom trigger: https://www.mjtnet.com/manual/index.html?trigger.htm
