A more efficient way of using "Switch of Variable" or perhaps another solution? (no scripts if possible)

I use this setting (for 3 options):
(then 2 and 3...., not included in the screen dumps)

I would prefer to just hit the keys 1, 2 or 3 (much quicker( rather than having to click in the dialogbox and open to see the choices and manually select + enter.

So this is how it looks now:

So my end goal would be to output something like this:

Then just hitting 1, 2 or 3 and then go directly to 1, 2 or 3.

(The variable name "Local__IconChoice" is not really logical in this context. I used it for another macro...... And choice 3 is not that logical eihter, I am testing some things....)

Here's an idea:

  1. Create a separate macro for each action you wish done.
  2. Assign all of them the same Hot Key
  3. Create another Macro (Sub-Macro) to be called by each of the above to do the actual processing.
  4. Pressing the Hot key will show a Conflict Palette
  5. Press the number of the Macro you want.

It looks like this:

Example of Macro Calling Sub-Macro


Will that work for you?

I would prefer a different solution one based on what I have more or less if possible. But if no other solution come up.... Thanks!

How is my solution different from yours?

Except for the UI styling, that is almost exactly how my method works.

Thanks! I will look more into it! And I will not forget to tell you here, with my conclusion.
(I was hoping there was a function within KM that would approach this more directly)!

Now I have tried it more into the depths and it works great! I agree!
Thank you once more ! :smiley:
