Activate The Archive for Search (using Keyboard Maestro)
Here is another little convenience macro for The Archive.
I'm trying to replace the formidable (but aging) nvALT with The Archive. There is one functionality of nvALT I'm really missing. nvALT let's you set a global keyboard shortcut to summon nvAlt from everywhere and start searching right away.
I use a very basic Keyboard Maestro macro to get that functionality back. It does only two things:
1. Bring The Archive to the front (in my case, with the global shortcut
cmd+L to jump into the omni search bar
With this macro I can hit my shortcut and instantly type along my search demands. This is no rocket science but it feels so much faster than command-tabbing to The Archive (or god forbid, crawling through the Dock with that mouse-thing) before I can start my search.
You can download the macro if you want to try it for yourself.
