Paste to dictionaries on a network PC

I've got two PCs, connected in a network. I want to copy a word from a word processor on PC-1 and paste it simultaneously to two dictionaries on PC-2. Even (if it’s possible) to achieve automatic pressing of Enter key for the two dictionaries in order to get the word's definitions for the desired word. Is it possible to do this with RoboTask?

Yes, of course

You can pass your word (or phrase) to another PC through network.
Just include it into network command.
For example:
ADDWORD My key phrase

You can configure Listener to wait word ADDWORD at the beginning of the command
So the rest symbols are your phrase.
Listener can pass the received expression to the task. So you can analyze and parse it.

Just to be clear: I'm talking about copying and pasting (each time) different words?

You can use variables

for example
Save your word or phrase into variable MyVar
Next, send the command
ADDWORD {MyVar}

Maybe wise to move this topic away from "suggestions" and to the "General" part. Just a idea.
