Triggers not working correctly.
 
For some reason I can't get triggers to work correctly.

In the past I would use * and %1.

For example:

The trail to your prey leads *.

my execute command would be: %1
(this should move me in the direction of my prey)

Cmud does see the pattern and tries to execute, but sends nothing. All of my triggers that don't pass any words or digits work.
I haven't played with triggers in a few years but I remember this working. Did some syntax change? Any help is appreciated.

In order to capture the text in the trigger, you need to surround it with parentheses.

The trail to your prey leads (*).

Also you should use a command of #SEND {%1} rather than just %1.
