i just bought keyboard maestro for replacing quickeys. i am totaly new to macros and i dont realy know it. i just need a solution to jump with a shortcut 30 seconds forward in a track i play in itunes (version 184.108.40.2066 on macos catalina). is anybody able to provide me such a macro? or is there an easier way to do this in keyboard maestro?
Welcome to Keyboard Maestro (KM) and its Forum.
KM is one of the best Mac automation tools available, and its Forum is one of the best and friendliest forums on the Internet. Whenever you reach a tough stumbling block trying to use KM, please feel free to post your question/problem here for help.
Is this iTunes or Music? Also, is there a button to skip forward in the menubar anywhere? Using a menubar button is super easy. If there is, does it skip 5/10/30/a set amount of seconds reliably?
Alternatively, does searching for an Applescript snippet on Google give any good results? If you can come to us with Applescript that might do the job then integrating it with keyboard maestro to give you a hotkey could be a way forward.
thanks a lot guys for the answers! and special thanks to ggllck for the script! works perfect
the only problem i have now is that my added hot key is not working. but dunno why. in other macros its working. its not blocked by the system and the shortcut is not used by any other application. tested different shortcuts. any idea?
You're welcome. Glad it's working for you as well. Regarding your question, I second @vincent_ardern; judging from that screenshot, it looks like you might have this macro in a group that isn't configured to be available everywhere you want.
