Image Finder doesn't work


I am a beginner.

So, looking at the manual, I am learning the same as when I first studied coding.

But there is a blockage. I can't find any images at all. Please let me know which setting is wrong.

Does not work even in native image state.

Welcome aboard! And yes, learning Keyboard Maestro is a lot like learning coding, because there's so much to learn at the start. But you can do it!

Other people will probably have better tips, but here's some thoughts:

  1. Your "fuzziness" slider is probably set too high. I'd guess you tried changing it to get it to work, but in this case, for the image you're looking for, I would imagine the default should work just fine.

  2. It's possible that it's finding two images - the one on your desktop, and the one that is displayed in the action. Try collapsing the action (click the "v" in the upper-right of the action).

  3. Finding images on top of desktop backgrounds can sometimes be difficult. In this case, since it looks like it's on a solid black part of the image, it may be OK (or maybe not). Something to think about.

I hope that helps.

Hey There,

If you're not getting anything at all then you may have a permissions problem.

Thank you very much. Among the items you mentioned, 'engine' was not allowed in the screen recording.
