2 Very Handy Quicksilver Triggers For Keyboard Junkies - Part 2

Written November 24, 2010 at 08:00 MST Tagged tools

In the last post I mentioned a quicksilver trick that could give you access to menu items and windows (these are actually one of a large set of features that you can take advantage of once you have enabled proxy objects).

Some people were having trouble getting this feature working. One thing that will ensure that it works is to download the latest version of the UIAccess plugin from here. Once you have downloaded it, you can install it into quicksilver. I use a simple shell script to copy all of my plugin configuration from my "devtools" repository, back into the location where quicksilver expects to find it:

~/Library/Application Support/Quicksilver/PlugIns

This makes it simple when I am reimaging a new machine, or when I add plugins on my laptop and want to switch back to my desktop and have the exact same setup.

Here is the directory listing for my plugins directory:

Calculator Module.qsplugin
Chat Support.qsplugin
Clipboard Module.qsplugin
Command Line Tool.qsplugin
Cube Interface.qsplugin
Developer Module.qsplugin
Dictionary Module.qsplugin

Hopefully this will help get the menu and window triggers going for you!!
