thanks in advance for your time and help
Not that I'm aware. I remember performing this years ago (on 300 plus macros) when I was creating my Citrix filing system. I couldn't find a native solution so I said... "this is Keyboard Maestro" - so I made my own. Once I was done, I deleted it and used templates to create from there. I should have kept it for you. It's a simple make though.
thank you for your comment.
I wonder if @gglick 's excellent search and replace and batch process triggers could be adapted to icons
....annndddd subscribing to this topic because that's an interesting idea and one I would definitely be interested in
Is it possible to batch replace icons in multiple macros in KM 10?
If you copy ⌘C the icon from one Macro's icon Image Well, you can multiple select all the other Macros you want to have this icon (in the Macro Column) and press ⌘V to change them all in one step. I know this isn't a "batch" automated action but it still speeds up the process. I think this was introduced in KM10 or shortly before.
great !! thanks very much !
I would add that your writing is concise and clear.
Learn something new daily! I surely hope it was introduced after KM 9 and I didn’t do all that work before in vain. I surely remember creating a macro to change about 200 icons.
Thanks @Zabobon !
Funnily enough I delayed mentioning this feature, as I assumed everyone here knew about it and it wasn’t the exact answer to the question about “batch” processing (which for me means pressing a button and making a coffee while the Mac works)
Even funnier is the fact that maybe I knew this technique but forgot. I normally don’t delete macros. From time to time, I remove unused macros out of KM and into an old macro folder. I couldn’t find it so I assumed that I deleted it but this could be how I, previously, did mine. Hell man, who knows?… I have so many macros that I recreate some macros that I already have. Imagine what @peternlewis goes through? Anyway, it’s good that you posted as a reminder to some and an answer to those that need it. I’m trying to do a better job putting comments, with keywords, in my macros these days. Lord knows I can no longer keep all this in my head….
