[SOLVED] Any way to assign a secondary hotkey?

Recommended Posts

I've been using Alfred for years now, and its keyboard shortcut is burned into my muscle memory. Unfortunately, another app's shortcut is also burned into memory: CTRL+OPT+CMD+C, which I've used for years to launch an app called Calq... which was a 32 bit app, and as such, has gone the way of the dinosaur with the launch of MacOS 10.15.

 

The good news is that Alfred's calculator functionality means I haven't lost any of the functionality of Calq, and it behaves pretty much exactly the same way. The bad news is that I always forget about it, and my habit of conjuring Calq leaves me confused when nothing happens upon firing the old, engrained shortcut. Sure, I could just get over it and eventually learn to forget the old Calq shortcut, but old habits die painfully hard.

 

So, in short: Is there a way to assign a secondary shortcut to Alfred WITHOUT removing the original hotkey? If I could call it forth using EITHER shortcut combo, my life would be so much simpler...

This is very simple to do with Keyboard Maestro. All you'd need to do is tell Keyboard Maestro that when you press the secondary keystroke to send the primary keystroke.

It’s simpler with Alfred, and doesn’t require a second paid app running on the system. I don’t think our first suggestion should ever be to recommend an extra app, unless we’re certain it isn’t possible with the main software (in this case Alfred) alone.

 

@VeryVito Connect a Hotkey Trigger to a Show Alfred Utility, and you’re good to go.
