Is there a way to modify the default website's shortcut using KM?

There are many websites have their own built in shortcuts, and some of them just so annoying.

Such as a Trello card, by hitting [spacebar] makes you Assign yourself from a card, But I just want it to be normal to scroll down the page. So I built the macro below.

Keyboard Maestro 8.2 “Space alternative for Trello” Macro

Space alternative for Trello.kmmacros (4.4 KB)

it works, but it just slow down the speed when I type a 'space' in other websites(you know, KM has to go through the if statement first)

So I wonder If there is another way to change the default shortcuts for websites?

Have you tried reversing the If Then Else actions? That is, if the URL Does Not Contain, execute a Space, otherwise simulate the scroll wheel (which, alternatively, might perform better if set to simulate Page Down).

Thanks for reply~ I tried it but ti seems that also has the problem – slow down the speed when I type a literal space on browser. What is worse, I just can’t type a real ‘space’ in trello page.

Have you looked for browser extensions? There seems to be one for just about everything. . . :wink:

For example:

I don't have a Trello account, but testing this on the site's homepage seemed to work without any delay there or on other sites. The difference in this setup is that rather than creating a variable based on the URL, this macro just checks for "Trello" in the window name.

Thanks for reply @JMichaelTX~ but it seems that this extension doesn't work though.

then post a comment to the developer.

Yeah, I guess so.
