This has been changing daily but it’s starting to settle down. And, believe it or not, I’ve written a Keyboard Maestro macro for it.
There are five widgets active, all derived from those found in the Widgets Gallery. On the bottom line is the time and a line calendar. On the left side is battery status, the top CPU widget (reformatted) and my reminders widget (based on a simple to-do list widget).
This arrangement works on both my secondary monitor and on a laptop screen without modification. The screen shot above is from the secondary monitor (hence no menu bar).
Now about that Keyboard Maestro macro. It provides a front end for my reminders:
The widget recognizes four types of items: Open (to do), Complete (done), Payments (bills) and Upcoming (events to keep in mind). They are identified by a code on the first line that helps sort the random lines in the file into categories and style them so what you see on the screen looks orderly.
It’s easy enough to do this in a text file (with a Keyboard Maestro macro to open the file) and that’s what I’ve been doing. But then I thought why not use Prompt for User Input to make it a breeze.
The popup in the Keyboard Maestro macro includes options to add an Open, Payment or Upcoming event, mark an event Complete or Delete an item. All done with Keyboard Maestro actions.
(Oh, and thanks, @ccstone, for the Mission Control reminder. I do that by accident now and then but I think I’ll start doing it intentionally now on the laptop to check the time.)
