Do not disturb while using Screenflow9 to record my screen

Please, guide me through the process of:

  • If Screenflow’s record button clicked (normally use partial screen cupture)
  • Turn on DND
  • Stopped recording
  • Turn off DND


Keyboard Maestro doesn't have a built-in way to toggle Do Not Disturb, so you'll need to make sure you've enabled a keyboard shortcut for it in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts.

I would suggest creating a macro that uses a variant of the keyboard shortcut for activating / finishing recording with Screenflow. I'd suggest Ctrl-Shift-Command-2, but feel free to use whatever works for you.

The macro would then do the following:

  1. Simulate the keyboard shortcut to start / stop recording, Shift-Command-2
  2. Simulate the keyboard shortcut you chose to toggle Do Not Disturb.

I would suggest not attempting to tie your KM macro directly to the keyboard shortcut that Screenflow uses, as the result could be unpredictable.

I'm attaching a quick-and-dirty macro I just knocked together which illustrates the above.
