Understanding application-specific palettes - show always when app is frontmost

I've looked at https://forum.keyboardmaestro.com/t/application-specific-palette/14001/2 and https://wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/manual/Palettes and https://wiki.keyboardmaestro.com/Macro_Groups#Setup_Criteria_Advanced but I'm still missing something that is probably obvious but my brain is blanking on it.

I have a Macro Group which is specific to Zoom when Zoom is front-most. These are basically shortcuts to things like mute/unmute, start/stop video, etc.

I would like a palette of all of the macros in that macro group to appear whenever Zoom is front-most, and to stay for the entire time that Zoom is front-most.

I'm sure this is possible but I'm not seeing how to do it.

(If only macOS had 'tear off menus' like NeXTStep//OpenStep and I believe classic Mac OS did!)

Set the group to be "always active and display a palette until.." Don't pick anything, it should work for you.

Aha! "Shows a palette until" was the key. Didn't realize I could leave the options un-checked.

For future reference (possibly to myself) this is how it looked when I finally got it working.

LOL. That moment when when you search a forum and find the result in response to the question you asked a couples years ago.
