I am using NisusWriterPro as an example. My question is not about NisusWriterPro.
I have been using keyboard maestro for more than 5 years, created many macros, and too many keyboard shortcuts to remember.
I just recently restarted (after a few years) using NisusWriterPro as a RTF editor in DevonThink, and greatly appreciate their keyboard shortcuts which are different from anything that I have seen, and most importantly easy to remember, as opposed to conventional shortcuts.
An example is best suited to explain what I mean:
Let’s say that I want to convert a sentence to a header.
In NisusWriterPro, as with all word processing apps, I can select from a wide variety of header styles. For example, in Scrivener I have to remember the keyboard shortcut corresponding to each header type/style. I other apps (Pages I think) I don’t even have that choice and have to mouse click.
In NisusWriterPro, if I type ⌘H → keep pressing on the ⌘ key → I can press any other key on the keyboard to choose the header style I want. All is configurable. For example if I type in a title → ⌘H keep pressing on the ⌘ key → press the R key, the title turns of centered bold red size 18 (as I configured it).
So my question is how do you call this type of shortcut and can it be emulated in keyboard maestro or AppleScript ?
Note that the default ⌘H global shortcut is inactivated which is fine.
thanks in advance for your time and help
