Keycombo: Mouse-click and Key

Hi Forum,

I want to simulate a keystroke (other than modifier) combined with a mouse-click.

My approach was this (see screenshot):

  1. Press and hold "Key"
  2. Click
  3. Release

Unfort., it's not functioning... :frowning:
Any suggestions?

Thanks,
A. P.

What about it is “not working”? Perhaps an alternative question would be, what application is so bizarre that that action would be necessary, because that would probably lead to why it is not working.

My only suggestion would be to add a pause before and after the click. Start with a long pause (say 1 second) and see if that works or not. If it does, you can try to shorten the pause. If it doesn’t, you’re probably out of luck.

:joy: The program in question is Finale (music engraving/notation tool). It uses “keystroke-click” combos in almost all of its advanced workflows.

My old suggestion would be to add a pause before and after the click.

Not working, unfortunately.

Thanks for the effort,
Best,
