Trigger Macro by Name

Trigger Macro by Name is an easy way to access your Macros. This is useful when you don't want to assign a keyboard shortcut because the action isn't used all the time. It's also a good way to execute a macro when you can't remember the trigger command.

Creating the Trigger Action

Trigger Macro by Name isn't enabled by default, you have to create a Macro to get this working.

  1. Create a new Macro, put it in the default Global Macro Group
  2. Create a useful trigger action, Keyboard Maestro recommends: Control Option Command T
  3. Insert the Trigger Macro by Name Action
  4. Save

Now when you use the Control Option Command T you'll be able to access any active Macro in Keyboard Maestro.
