Andreas Zeitler’s Keyboard Maestro Macros Repo

Andreas Zeitler's Keyboard Maestro Macros Repo

A new collection of Keyboard Maestro macros by Andreas Zeitler:

Macros are meant to be imported “folder by folder”, rather than all at once. I’ve tried to make it more convenient for the user by putting all macros in a group labelled “Keyboard Maestro Macros Repo” before exporting. This way they are imported in a group of the same name, so that you can easier find them.

Note however: Some macros have very “commonly” used triggers like F1, ↑, or ↓. In these instances it is best to put the macros in a new group that is only available in one certain application, or a group that can be turned on and off by a separate shortcut. The window manipulation macros are an example of that. The triggers for moving a window by 1px in either direction is simply ↑, ↓, ←, and →. If not put in a new group you won’t be able to use these keys anymore.

Andreas is the creator of the Keyboard Maestro Markdown Library, which I use on a daily basis. In fact, I don't think I could ever come back to using a Mac -- or writing on my computer in general -- without the Keyboard Maestro Markdown Library, which is now part of the repo available on GitHub.

I'm already a big fan of several macros Andreas included in this new collection. I particularly appreciate the ones related to Mail: there's one to easily copy a message's unique URL, and another one to print a message as PDF with a single keystroke.
