Showing palette like Maya hotbox


I have been using KM extensively and have several macros for different contexts.

I have several palettes and was thinking a way to create a better navigation between them and I thought about Maya hotbox. That is old software but I really liked the hotbox. Basically it will show elements in a circular fashion circling the cursor and without clicking you can navigate and then click the element you want to trigger.

I am adding an image of how it looks in Maya and this video: Using the Maya Hotbox - YouTube

Is this something that can be done at KM?

Thanks a lot!


Hey David,

You could probably approximate that by moving the palette windows around in the macro that displays them.

But – it would be relatively slow and complicated.

You could also roll your own system using Keyboard Maestro Custom HTML dialog – IF you have the programming chops.
