MACRO: Toggle Between Macros and Maintain Scroll Position

I think this is called the “Recently Edited Macros” or “Macro Edit History”.
You might check for a .plist in the KM support folder.

But I’m sure @peternlewis can tell us exactly where he stores this list.

I did notice, and was pleasantly surprised. It is good to hear that this convention works for you also.

Oh my, the list is far, far to long to publish here.:astonished:
Just kidding!!! I think we agree on far, far more things that we have different preferences for — and that is all they are, “preferences”.
I’m sure I’ve learned more from you, and probably ignored more of your suggestions than the other way around. :smile:

LOL big time. And I wouldn’t count on it - either of those things.

It is saved in the com.stairways.keyboardmaestro.editor.plist file, but only when the editor quits.

thanks, Peter.

Any ideas on how to get this list in real-time, while the KM Editor is open?
Or must we resort to using AppleScript to capture the list in the menu?

Hey JM,

I tried to do that when I wrote the open history button menu script, but as far as I can tell there are no UI elements available from button 1 of group 5 – even after the menu has been opened.


Thanks, Chris.

I’m wondering…

What if you issued a DownArrow keystroke to highlight the first menu item?
Would it then be possible to capture the menu item name?



No UI elements are available.


Any chance of getting access to this as an OSA command?

The world is full of possibilities. That one is more likely that Batman v Superman being a good movie, but probably less likely than the next Star Wars movie.

You know… it’s kind of… hard… to type… when… I’m laughing!

Thanks. That felt good. :slight_smile:

NOTE: This macro is now outdated.

KM now automatically keeps track of scroll position.

Please use this macro instead:
