how to remove quotes from message?

Oct 29 2010 | 5:06 am

I have a [combine] that sets up a "send xxx, message" to a [forward]. in the combine arguments, there are quotes so that everything is spaced right. for some reason there are quotes around the whole resulting message. It doesn’t work right with forward, but the same message without quotes will.

How can I remove double quotes enclosing a message? I’ve messed around with regexp… thx for any help.

Looks like regexp doesn’t recognize these quotes as part of the message. I’m so confused…

Here’s what I want. Clicking on the button should use the [combine] to send the same exact message to [forward] as does the leftmost message. the word "arguments" should be printed under "result". Nothing works as expected… please help. Thanks.

this–as a brute-force solution–works:

I’m a bit late to this thread, but maybe it’ll help someone out, here’s a much simpler solution w/ only one object: [sprintf %s] :)
