Using Alfred to send a numpad / or *

Recommended Posts

How do I use Snippets or Workflows to have Alfred simulate sending a / or * - specifically those keys on the Numpad that you find on full sized keyboards that no-one has anymore - I'm working with an application that replicates Windows ability to expand / collapse a tree (I'm working inside a Fusion Windows VmWare but Fusion has no ability to map keys to those special keys either)

You can use AppleScript to simulate the keypress. tell application "System Events" to key code 75 simulates the / key on the numpad on my full-size keyboard that no-one has anymore. * is key code 67.
