Move Cursor to Selected Item

If I am in a app (any app, in this case DevonThink) is there a way to move the cursor to the currently selected item (a database or group or document) ?
The impetus for my question is to find a way to open the context menu of the selected item which is not possible with the menu.
thank you

Hi Ronald,

Perhaps the solution in this post can help. I think it is doing (sort of) what you're asking for.

Unfortunately, sometimes it works and most of the time not. Thank you for thinking about my problem and your suggestion

thank you. I had a look.

Hey @ronald,

Well – it can be done albeit not perfectly.

You have to use a found-image action based on your Mac's highlight color.

Depending upon your application you can often find an image that will be unique enough to make it pretty bomb-proof and efficient.

The above image works perfectly in my Finder and includes a 1-2 pixel-width gray line on the left.


That represents the very edge of the window up against the sidebar.



I had unsuccessfully tried that method. I will try again with your macro and following your image instructions. thanks very much
