I finally decided to switch to Keyboard Maestro. I really liked Quickeys but it hasn’t had a significant update since 2009. It’s been over a year and a half since their developer died and I’ve seen no evidence they have a new effective development team in place. I didn’t mind too much since most of the features I used still worked. The features that didn’t work properly, like toolbars, I didn’t use. However now I’m starting to hit their snippet expansion and the limits are really annoying. I’ve figured out workarounds but they are hacks and don’t always work well. At a certain point though you have to ask yourself: why am I working around this product’s limits when there’s a better product available?
Since I was already redoing my keyboard workflow while I take some time off for a new baby it’s a great time to update my macro workflow fully. So there will be quite a few posts on this as I go on.
