Using double-shift as a hotkey

Hi, I'm trying to replicate the "Double-Shift" trigger in IntelliJ, while in VS Code (See this thread:

I can't seem to get Keyboard Maestro to use a single (or even double) shift as a hot key without another key also being used. Is this possible?



AFAIK it is not possible. I suggest you choose another key (near shift ?) and detect a long press with shift as a hot key trigger.

You could do this if you are willing to give up one of your shift keys as an actual shift key. In that case, remap one of the shift keys to something else with Karabiner Elements and then program a KM Macro to detect that remapped key with a shift modifier.
