# Keyboard Maestro

Last updated Unknown Edit Source

Keyboard Maestro is an app that allows to automate tasks within macOS. Think: Shortcuts, but on steroids.

I call the Keyboard Maestro macros with hotkeys or with an extension for Raycast, but some triggers can be automated as well, eg. connecting an USB device.

In progress

I am still learning how to use KM. Hence, my automations are pretty limited at the moment.

## # Things I automate

• googling the selected text with ⌘ ⇧ 1
• opening Google Maps with the route and ETA to provided destination
• text expanding
• e.g. by typing ;invoice I make KM to type full message of my typical invoice e-mail
• translating selected text
• opening my favorites directories in Finder from everywhere
• copying samples to my MPC Live once I connect it to my computer
• sorting
• etc. etc.

Even though these examples are basic, it feels right to automate these activities. I’ve learnt a lot about the application itself whan I was making these scenarios.
