KM Freezes?

Often, KM will freeze and sometimes skip commands.

It's not the fault of KM, I think, but the fact that the machine is ignoring KM occasionally.

When scripting Pages, it will often reach, for example, an "Export to" command and freeze after receiving the "Return" keystroke from KM, and I have to babysit the scripts to enter "Return" manually.

How can I fix this? I've tried not touching the Mac while KM is running anything, and it still will freeze.


I'd keep an eye on Activity Monitor for anything hogging the CPU.

Keyboard Maestro rarely freezes or skips commands.

Those kinds of problems tend to be caused by timing issues.

Please post your Pages macro, so we can see what you're doing.
