Macro Set: Provide Keyboard Shortcuts for Selecting Recently Edited and Run Macros (v9.0.2)

Use Case

  • Provide Keyboard Shortcuts for Selecting Recently Edited and Run Macros
  • KM Provides Toolbar buttons for these, but they are hard to use, and have no Shortcuts.
  • This Provides a Set of Companion Macros with HotKeys
    1. Recently EDITED Files/Macros
    2. Recently RUN Macros
  • Both Macros have the Same HotKey by default, so you will get a Conflict Palette to choose.
  • You can Download each Macro separately below
  • My sincere thanks to Chris @ccstone for providing the AppleScripts which make both of these Macros possible.

WOW ! a jewel in terms of KBM workflow ! thank you so much !

Just an idea: is there any use in creating an equivalent for History, or is History basically contained in either Edited or Run ?

I am asking because it's tedious to run through history with front back arrows one by one instead of picking from a list where you want to navigate.

The "History" work on the same list as "Modified" (aka "Edited") button.
So there is no need for another macro.
And there are already built-in menu items and short cuts:
