I’m not a heavy user of KM and it took me five minutes to find the Global Macro Group. It should be highlighted somehow or put at the top of the list. All Macros and Enabled Macros get that treatment.
I had a macro that ended up in an app specific Macro Group. I couldn’t find a menu item, right click item or suggestions in the wiki on Macros on how to move my macro tot he Global Macro Group. And that group was in a list of about 20 other groups, so it didn’t stand out.
I know RTFM, but these days I'm running dozens of different apps. No excuse, except that the manual didn't cover my issue. This is not the first macro program I've used over the years and relearning gets old. OK I did make excuses.
I did take what you said and will try a Smart Group and see if that works.
Note blank at front of name which puts it on top. This may serve as enough of a reminder without duplicating KM.
Believe me, I know the feeling. I’m in the same position with LaunchBar.
It is not the relearning (or maybe better stated as learning a new app) that is the problem for me. LB is a great tool that I’m using 100s (literally) of times a day. Yet I know I’m only using about 10% of its capability. I’ve tried to read the docs many times, but it seems I don’t get the organization and/or terminology enough to find what I want, and I have limited time.
Fortunately, we have some KM members here that are LB experts, especially @Tom.
He has been kind and patient with me, offering me LB tips many times in this forum.
So, @KBM, please feel free to ask any question you have.
Many years ago I invented (or started using) the “15 minute rule”, which means that if I can’t find the answer to my question from the app documents/menus within 15 minutes, then I called the Help line. I referring to mostly “how-to” stuff, not major design questions.
