I'd like to set a Hot Key (arrow key) for Chrome without affecting its built-in functionality in another application. How do I do that?
Create a folder in the left column of Keyboard Maestro ("Groups") using the
+ key the bottom of the left column.
When created, the right pane will show "Available in All Applications".
Change to "Available in These Applications"
+ icon right underneath.
Might be easier to see than explain:
Thanks for taking the time to illustrate it with a video!
I'll give it a try. My challenge is, I share these macros with a group of 5 other users and have been maintaining them in a single group to make sharing easier. Have shied away from using the Sync feature since I maintain several other groups for personal use.
There is another way.
You can use an IF/ELSE, check to see if Google Chrome is front-most, and if it is, do whatever you want, otherwise, just send the arrow key.
Here's an example using the Up Arrow:
I think that'll work better in my case. I was trying something similar but did not think to "pass" the keystroke on if Chrome was not at front. Thanks!
