Remote menu analogue for OS X


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am an avid user of Alfred and recently I bought Logitech MX Master mouse to enhance my experience as Mac power user. And I found out that it would be great to trigger some kind of radial menu or context menu (iOS remote menu is exactly the thing I'm talking about) with bookmarked actions and workflows and to bind this action to one of the mouse buttons. Currently Alfred's philosophy is focused on keyboard, but it would be great to have such trick in PowerPack arsenal.

 

Hope this idea will look promising.

 

Regards,

Dmitry.

You can use Bettertouchtool to assign a Keycombo to your Mousebuttons. Then you can use this Keycombo to call a Alfred workflow, there you go :)

 

How is the Mx masters tho ? I was thinking to get one myself a while ago.

I do the same with my trackpad.

I have gestures to show Alfred Search / Clipboard and Snippets

and gestures linked to key combinations that launch Alfred workflows.

more, if in Bettertouchtool you have more than one action linked to the same button / gesture,  they will appear as a contextual menu, allowing you to choose which one to launch

Wow, I was not aware that BetterTouchTool offers such a trick with contextual menu. Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for.

I already use BTT with trackpad and keyboard, but juliosecco provided nice trick to use it more efficiently with a mouse.

 

And Mx Master is simply amazing. I use it only for a week, and it already made great impact on my productivity.

Lots of programmable buttons, 3 of them can be used for jestures (not the BTT kind of jesture, but click + direction, which is more convenient). Every direction is customizable too! And of course, both scroll wheels are perfect.
