Screenshot App Activation Gives Me Action Timeout

I have the following simple macro:

When I trigger it (via cmd-F9), the Screenshot app appears as expected, but when (1) I have set the self-timer option and (23) I execute the screenshot taking via pressing Return I get after the screenshot the following notification from KM:

Screen Shot 2021-09-14 at 6.57.30 pm

Very odd. Any idea why's that?

It is presumably not a real foreground application, so it never really becomes the front application, hence the timeout.

Just disable the timeout and notification.

Hey Leo,

The various options are in the gear menu of the action, or you can right-click it to get the contextual menu.
