[SOLVED] How to Create Smart Group Based on Hotkey Trigger String?


I want to create a smart group which displays only those macros triggered by the keyboard shortcuts which use the shift-opt-cmd modifiers (+ a keyboard letter or number).

I tried trigger:⇧⌥ ⌘ but I get too many results including the zillion caps hyperkey shortcuts

I tried trigger:"⇧⌥ ⌘" which yields no results (understandably).

One way of expressing it would be to use trigger:⇧⌥ ⌘ and exclude from the results those macros which use the ctrl ⌃ key.

I tried trigger:⇧⌥ ⌘ NOT ⌃ but it does not work. Results include many macros with ctrl in the trigger.

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Hey @ronald,

You may want to reread what the trigger search string actually does...

manual:Search Strings [Keyboard Maestro Wiki]

Try this:

hotkey:⌥⇧⌘ -hotkey:⌃
