In this new version 8 or possibly in an earlier version, is it possible to temporarily turn off some of the actions in a macro?
Example: I use three monitors. Tomorrow I am taking my mac to show someone how my work-flow works. Today’s macro gets my Freeter app opened, launches my TaskPaper document, and finally, launches my NVAlt app and puts it on my left screen.
I do not need this last step in tomorrows presentation. It is not useful or practical as it is using my extra screen.
It could also be useful if there was a way to put a non actionable comment block in a work flow for notes on this sort of action.
It would be useful if there was a way to tick a button on the macros actions so that, they were still there for later but could be temporarily switched off when not practical.
Thanks. But … I am wondering if this is a bit overkill for what I wanted? I was thinking in the new version of KM there might me a way to switch off actions in a work-flow. This would be similar to what I have seen in photo editing software where you can usually turn off a filter to test it’s results - without actually deleting the filter in a work-flow.
Your macro example looks like it turns off the entire macro. All I wanted was to turn off two of the steps. I can always delete them and then put them back later but, I was hoping I could just turn them off temporarily.
Sorry if that was in what you offered and I missed it.
Oh for goodness sake, do I feel silly. Thanks for the macro and the tip, but the solution was right in front of me the whole time, and was much less complicated than running a script.
All I had to do was to select the actions, right click on the gear icon on the actions upper right corner of the action, and select disable action(s). Duh! When I want it back I do the same thing and select enable action(s).
