[Solved] Color label in macro name

like in Finder:

Why: Helps organize them visually, see which ones are working, which ones need tweaking, etc.
Another use is to visually find a macro quickly, ie Favorites, or pending ones to delete (ie Red).

My Tag Team Wrestling Partner! You can use the built in Emoji to do that (control-cmd-space). I use them sometimes in my macro titles. I put many in there for you. Just an idea.

I hope this helps.



Here a very bare-bones macro to quickly append stuff to macro names:

Append suffix to names of selected macros <B09B 200316T225756>-pty-fs8

Append suffix to names of selected macros <B09B 200316T225756>.kmmacros (27.7 KB)

  1. Select macro(s) in KM editor
  2. Run macro
  3. Select icon from list
  4. Press Return

If you don’t want the list to remember the last selection, remove the variable from the Default field in the List action.


wish I could select both as solutions, both are great! gratzie!

It was @kcwhat’s idea. I just automized it :slight_smile:

I only posted it for a few reasons:

  1. My tag team partner, @hello, needed assistance before tapping out. His energy was nearing depletion.

  2. @Tom thought about the idea, years ago, and used his subliminal powers to hypnotize me into presenting it before he had time to address the issue.

  3. I knew @Tom would jump in and professionally automate it.

I saw the symptoms as well (He has been issuing a worryingly increased number of bug reports and feature requests lately). And I realized that in this state he will never be able to manually copy an emoji from the Characters palette to a macro name :wink:


worst of all, I use the Characters palette at work :man_facepalming:

gotta catch some z's :wave:
