HI, I am trying to interact with a Gmail compose window menu to add labels to outgoing messages (to my knowledge there is no keyboard shortcut for that). I am able to open the menu by searching for an image (see screenshot), but I can't select a menu item: searching for an image of the "Label" menu item will not work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
Here’s where I got that from, and some AppleScript that will open the compose in a new window:
But if you really do want to manipulate that menu, that’s cool. But it’s an HTML menu, so you can’t use one of KM’s standard actions. I’m guessing there’s a way to do it through one or more of the HTML/Browser actions, but I don’t know what it is. Someone else will have to give you the answer, though. I’ll be interested to see what they recommend.
There is actually a keyboard shortcut to compose, so I will not need the compose link.
I just wanted to have a shortcut to add a label while composing. I noticed that if you run the macro again after the html menu is open, the image search for a menu item will work, so I am trying to nest this second macro within the first. Thanks!
I wanted to check if anybody has a better solution to handle option selection in HTML menus? My solution based on image search is not optimal, as it does not work well across devices (desktop vs. laptop etc.).
HTML menus are increasingly common and a general solution might be applicable to other websites as well.
