I have followed your instructions (and, indeed, macros are easy to set up).
I get the line to be cut, no problem. However, the cut-line is not pasted into the clipboard.
If I perform each of the steps of the macro, the text of the line is placed in the clipboard and I can recover it with Paste command.
However, if I run the macro, then I do not manage to find the text cut. I have look arond with paste, paste previous and paste next, but to no avail. Any idea as to why ?
(I still think that since the behaviour of ctrl-k/ctrl-y is already implemented by defaut on the Mac, it would be preferable to transfer that to textmate -- although, I suspect that there is a good reason why it has not been done).
