Search my macros by hotkey/text string

Hi. Sometimes I want to see which macro is using a particular hotkey or search string. What search syntax would I use to accomplish this?

I have a macro i use for just this purpose.

It uses a smart group called "Display macros by use of modifiers" as well as a regular group called "Macros by Modifier Use"

It is the second most useful macro I have ever made.

It brings up a palette with the various modifier combinations and all I have to do is click on the combination of interest and it changes the smart group search parameters to that.

Regarding the sharing of this, I have no idea if I have shared this properly or not. Let me know if not.

I do know that I can sort by modifier, but that's not what I'm asking for. I want to search for a specific one & have all others disappear from the results.

The Editor has some handy Search Strings. For triggers, you can use t:

For example, t:โŒƒโŒฅโ‡งโŒ˜ will show all macros whose trigger contains โŒƒโŒฅโ‡งโŒ˜ .

With my setup all you have to do is click on the modifier combo you want in a palette and it shows you all the macros that use that set of modifiers.

Thank you, that's what I was looking for! :grin: :+1:
