I can’t seem to find the answer to this. I want to have a set of macros in specific applications but NOT have those macros run in other apps. The macros I find in KM seem to all loop or run continuously by design (an element that makes little sense in most of my work).
Can a make macros function in specific apps and use the same trigger in a different app to do something else?
If so, is there a way to simply move or adjust current macros to work that way or do I need to re-create the macros from scratch?
Never mind. Found it. Groups.
The answer is yes to both your questions. When you create a macro group (in the left column) you are given the choice (in the right column) of “Available in the following applications”: all, certain specified, or all but certain specified.
A hot-key trigger can mean different things in different groups. If you inadvertently create an overlapping trigger, you’ll get a conflict palette that lets you pick the macro you want for the application you’re in
Do you have a screen shot as i can find this. All i see is this
After selecting this application you can't trigger when you want to start KM to start.
Read the Quick Start (menu Help ➤ Quick Start).
- If you want to make any changes, use the Editor.
- If you want anything to work, make sure the Engine is running.
- If you want to control when a Macro is active, configure the Macro Group.
- If you want to control when a Macro is executed, configure its Triggers.
- If you want to control what a Macro does, configure its Actions.
In this case, you want to control when a Macro is active, so you control that by configuring the Macro Group as @rolian so eloquently demonstrated.
Thank you soo much for this. worked like a charm
