To use the Hyper Meta Key (see here) under Mavericks just make the following adjustments to the PCKeyboardHack kext.
Cheat sheets for Keyboard Maestro macro.
I was updating some of my MarsEdit macros this week. I’d hoped to convert a lot over to primarily using Keyboard Maestro with a tiny bit of Applescript. However in practice they got a bit complex here and there and I just went back to using Python and Appscript.1 I suspect if you were diligent […]
If you cook you probably should use Paprika. The app. Not the spice. What’s especially nice about the app is that it syncs between the Mac version and the iPad/iPhone versions. That lets you enter your recipes on your Mac where you can use a mouse and keyboard to enter them. Unfortunately if you see […]
I love the new Downcast for Mac. It has a few missing features but let’s remember this is 1.0. I know on ADN a few people were complaining about the lack of an AirPlay button.1 I noticed the lack of Applescript support. That makes pausing and unpausing the playing of the podcast a bit of a […]
I’ve pretty well switched over to using ReadKit full time for all my rss reading. It’s still in a very rough state of functionality. There’s a lot of work for the developer to do to get up to the level of functionality of Reeder let alone the polish of Reeder. Not to mention that I’m using […]
One of my most used scripts that I use with Keyboard Maestro is my retweet to ADN script. However I went to use it today and found that it no longer worked if the retweeted tweet had replies. That’s because Twitter now displays replies before the tweet if you go to the url for a given […]
Resolve short urls with Pythonista. I love Pythonista but in practice rarely use it because there’s just little in my workflows that fits. I use the Bitly app rather than my url shortening script. The problem is that without a background macro library like Keyboard Maestro it’s just plain inefficient to run Python scripts. (IMO) […]
Create and edit lists in Keyboard Maestro. Clever. I’m not sure I’d use this but this is definitely something KM does that other apps don’t.
Layouts — Applescripts for Alfred that acts as a kind of window manager. A lot of this you could whip up yourself with Applescript and your own caller (Launchbar, Keyboard Maestro, etc.) I had a bunch of macros that did something similar then discovered I just rarely wanted my windows resized like that.
When you are doing a lot of quick searching it’s useful to know Safari’s main shortcuts. I’ve also added some useful shortcuts of my own via scripts and Keyboard Maestro. Go to Url Field: To get to the search/url pane hit ⌘L. I use this more than any other shortcut. Search History: To bring up your browser history and […]
How to save Keyboard Maestro screen shots of macros. Pretty useful if you post to blogs. I do wish they just had a text view for macros you could export and import. There’s something odd about having to do this by screenshots.
I really love ADN. I like that it has many aspects of Twitter but also has great discussions like mailing lists or forums used to have. There are now many free accounts you can get if you ask around. I’ve noticed a lot of the major blogs have been giving them away. I find myself […]
I’m quite happy with my recent switch to Keyboard Maestro. I’ll do a full review soon. The following is a fairly obvious script I’m sure most of you use. It simply gets the quoted form of the paths for all the Finder selection and puts it on the clipboard. Since I primarily use this with […]keep looking »
