Using Quick macro with Ctrl F1 and Option F1 is not working

Beginner question:
I am supposed to record a Quick Macro with [Control] + [F1]. And activate it with [Option] + [F1]

But nothing happens.

If I do a normal macro, the F1 key is nicely recognized as trigger. Why is Quick macro not working ?

Welcome to the forum!

Record Quick Macro is an action. Here it is in its own macro, with the trigger set to ⌃F1.

Put this macro in your Global Macros Group so that it's available in all apps. Happy automating!


You can also perform recording while you’re in the KM Editor. See the User Manual here: manual:Recording [Keyboard Maestro Wiki]
