hi, i'm not sure how to make a nested pallete (1 pallete for me that allows me to type a keystroke to launch any of 4 different other palettes, which in turn can launch a third level of macros). do i make a group for the first level-palette, then do i make 4 macros (what kind?) to put in that first group and those 4 macros launch 4 different other groups where the palletes come up? thanks for any help! -todd
Create macros that use the Show Palette of Macros action and place them in the group for the first level palette. Here's a threat with an example by @appleianer, who's one of the heaviest sub palette users on this forum:
thank you @gglick! i think i got it (do i have it right?)... one issue (screenshot attached): after the first level palette is activated, i'd like to be able to use hotkeys (ideally on-the-fly-assigned conflict palette type keys), do you know of a way i can get that to work? right now i have to click on the palette choices but the second level of palettes gives me conflict palette hotkeys. thanks! -todd
You're welcome, Todd. If you want auto-assigned conflict palette hotkeys for the top level palette, you just need to make a new macro to show that palette as well, rather than from the macro group settings as you currently have it.
hi gabe, that worked, thank you for your help!
This is similar to a question I asked on the forum a while back:
I still haven't solved the problem of aliased shortcuts not working.
After seeing this post I've started to build out some sub-pallets which ave been working great for App Specific groups. I have a Macro Group I use for text expansion and saved snippets so its active in all macro groups.
I created a sub pallet for this, but the issue I have is the Hot key I use to trigger this sub pallet is obviously activate always since its in all groups. Is there a way to trigger the sub pallet to only open when the main pallet itself is actually open?
