Selected text in Console window does not appear in External Tools Macro $SelectedText$

Make an external tool with
name: echoIt
program : /bin/echo
parameters: $SelectedText$
check : Open Console

Select text in editor window -> Tools->External Tools-> echoIt
(echo's text)

Select text in Console -> Tools->External Tools-> echoIt
(nothing echo'd)

Workaround: copy to clipboard, use $ClipboardContent$.

Is there a differenct Macro that references the currently active window's selected text?
