Can the KM Action Failed notification be changed to adhere to the Mac Notification Center preferences, so that we have a better notification?
With the KM 7.1 update that causes the macro to fail if the action fails (like the Search Variable/Clipboard actions now fail if the match fails.), the importance of a good notification message is even more important.
Currently, we get a message like this, which displays briefly with no sound:
whereas with the KM Notification Action, we get a message like this:
This notification plays a sound, and stays on screen until the "Closed" button is clicked.
Although the Mac Preferences for Notification allows for setting of "Alert", that stays on screen until dismissed, and for sounds, the KM notification for "Action Failed" does NOT use these settings:
From OS X Yosemite: Notifications preferences

Select a style for the app’s notifications:
- None: Notifications don’t appear on your screen.
- Banners: Notifications appear on your screen and disappear after a while.
- Alerts: Notifications stay on your screen until you dismiss them.
Play sound for notifications
- Let the app play notification sounds.
I have set both KM and KM Engine Notification preferences to the "Alert" mode, but the KM Action Failure notification did NOT change:
