Preamble: I don’t think that you would need to have or even know Scrivener to answer this question. It could apply to many other apps with floating and non floating windows.
Using Scrivener, I created (or rather, the moderator in the Scrivener forum helped me create) a utility which allows me to take notes on the fly when I am in other apps. The utility is basically a custom make Scrivener file which is a floating window. It is very useful.
My last step was to use Keyboard Maestro to open / close the Scrivener utility using bring to the front and hide window actions and a global keyboard shortcut.
My problem is that when I bring the floating window to the front, the floating utility window does come to the front which is great, but also the Scrivener app with all its active tabs.
According to a keyboard maestro forum moderator and expert (he is brilliant - ccstone) this is not possible using keyboard maestro.
I was wondering if the problem could be solved using an appleScript to show the Scrivener floating window with the name “Scratchpad based on Amber” to the front without showing the Scrivener app itself?
Thank you very much for your time and help
