Very nice work Peter, I was excited to see all these updates. Very nice to see the “Turn gear icon blue if there is a note attached to the action” however for me it seems to have turned most of my actions in my macro’s blue even if they don’t have a note attached to them. It seems to work fine for newly created macro’s though. Is there someway to have Keyboard Maestro recheck to see if there is a note or not? I have restarted the computer but that doesn’t seem to have changed anything.

I also got this dialog for the first time, it might have been there for a while but neat to see that you took the time to make this to keep things running smoothly.

The gear icon will be blue if there is anything of interest in the gear menu, that might be a note, or it might be that the action has extra configuration abilities.

Make sure if you get that dialog that you stop syncing if you have made any changes to your macros on the other version since upgrading. Otherwise you will learn that the live dangerously offer has appropriate consequences (and indeed, even the Check For Update will likely have consequences if you have made changes since upgrading your other Mac.

Okay thanks, not quite as useful as I had hoped but good to have. Still hoping that a more robust a floating action inspector will be available as you select through actions that can show comments and the other options. Kind of like command+option+I does for files in the finder as opposed to command+i for getting info for a single file.

Action Inspector:

Will do, thanks.
