Retrobatch (right click on icon + set the good file)

Hello !
I have Retrobatch application and i want to select ICON + right click on it. And after that, i have 1 on 3 selected files to choose. Is that possible to to this with Keyboard Maestro ?

Thanks for your help!

It is not clear to me what you are trying to do.

Is the icon in the Retrobatch UI, or is it the Retrobatch application icon you are trying to right click on?

How are the files then selected manually?

@peternlewis Sorry for the delay for my answer.

When i start Retrobatch apps, i need to right click on the icon and select ''resizeimage33.retroback'' see picture.

I try many thing, but nothing work :slightly_frowning_face:
If you have any idea, i will really happy :slightly_smiling_face:

That looks to me to be opening the Resizeimage33.retrobatch file with the Retrobatch application via the Dock. If that is what you are trying to do, just use the Open a File action and select the Resizeimage33.retrobatch file and the Retrobatch application.

The problem is, i need to right click to see the files appears. And after, i have to select file. :slightly_frowning_face:

So is it a different file each time?

You can right click on the Dock icon. I would not recommend it as a good way of automating, but you can. You'd want to make sure the dock size does not change though, otherwise you wont be able to find the image or its location.

I confirm that is always the same file. If you know how to program this, i will try :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Steve - this is very straightforward since you say you want to use the same file each time.

This macro demonstrates what you need to do - just make sure of the following:

  • You've enabled the macro and assigned a hot key trigger
  • You have put the correct pathname to your Retrobatch file that you want to open in the Open action
