Feature request: TriggerValue improvements

Wishlist for KM 10:

A better TriggerValue

  1. Tutorials
  2. Many examples
  3. Possible values
  4. Autocomplete & auto-suggest keys and keystrokes (ie Cmd, Ctrl, etc)


You are going to have to expand on this as I don't really understand what you are after.

Made a thread asking about how to use TriggerValue when I used the arrow keys in a trigger (Hyperkey + Up arrow):

Had read the TriggerValue wiki and roamed the forums, but still was unsure about how to use it. Was unaware that I needed to pass the arrow symbol, as a Unicode character.

So, TriggerValue is useful, but it's unclear that

  • One needs to pass unicode symbols (↑, ↓, ←, →, symbol for Cmd, symbol for Ctrl, etc etc)
  • How to enter those symbols in a text field, and
  • Make sure the inserted symbol is the correct one

So my request is to allow an easier & practical way to insert Unicode symbol characters, ie as part of a dropdown.


Hi @hello,

This macro may help you (I used the down arrow in this test macro, because the up arrow has been occupied):
