I own a 27-inch iMac. It's rather big and heavy. I'm inclined to purchase a new, smaller Mac so I can take my software (part of which is written in KM macros) on the road in order to demo it to potential users. By doing this I can get feedback on new features without having to drag people to my house or dragging my iMac to other homes and businesses.
I'm likely to purchase a laptop or a Mac Mini. The laptop line got a recent refresh this week, but the Mini is a little stale. But as far as KM goes, are all models equally useful for demoing things? I guess a laptop can use trackpad gestures, while no other model can use that KM feature. Are there other KM features that work only on certain models of Macs?
Apart from the KM trackpad gesture, I noticed an action (perhaps rudimentary) that works on the Touchpad. Not all Apple laptops have Touchpads.
I did notice several KM actions that work on "the screen". Do these actions work just as well when the screen happens to be an eGPU?
Is it possible that we could see a KM action in the future that uses the Touch ID to verify an identity? Just speculation. Perhaps the low level API for Touch ID is somehow protected from applications but there may still be a public API that an app like KM can use.
Not sure if you are teasing me with this, or I just don’t understand what you are trying to say.
Anyway, the AppleScript instruction with adminstrator privileges is an extremely useful one: it allows you to execute shell commands (or other stuff) that require elevated privilegies without passing the password through KM or – possibly worse – modifying the sudoers file.
That sounds like what I want. Although I don't know what the phrase "independent of its content" means. I thought I just wanted a way to ensure at some point during a macro's execution that it's me who triggered it.
I have an iMac27"-5K with the wide keyboard (including numerics)
I have ported some of my KM macros to my MacBook Pro with no problem.
You may however need to redefine shortcut keys that will run macro. I had to, because
I used the F13-F19 keys on the iMac and there are only F1-F12 on the macbookbro.
I find having the Touch Bar a great benefit
One other thing you may need to adjust will be as in my case, some of the mouseactions (like click here (X,Y)from center of found image) may need trimming to hit the right spot, since the screen resolution of the two Mac may not be the same
