So far I did the following action:

| task add --

which executes the following command:

task add -- description

where 'description' is text which is selected in claws message.

Now, I'd like to extend this action to combine selected text from the
claws message with my dialog input in order to mimic the following cli

task add pri:some_priority pro:some_project + at some_tags -- description

where I'd manually enter:

pri:some_priority pro:some_project + at some_tags 

while 'description' would be picked from claws' selected text.

I've tried by adding '>' in my action, but somehow I cannot get it.

Any idea how to do it and/or one needs some shell wrapper?
