This plug-in allows you to trigger actions in Quicksilver by drawing a gesture on screen using a mouse or trackpad.
Gestures are initiated by holding either a modifier key (Shift, Control, etc.) or a mouse button.
Colors and sounds are customizable in the preferences under Abracadabra.
Creating a Trigger¶
- In the Triggers… preferences, add a new trigger using the
+button and choose "Gesture".
- Click somewhere in the info panel's box and hold the button down.
- Draw the desired gesture, then release the button.
- Optionally, define the applications where the trigger should be active under the Scope tab.
- It helps to practice the gesture a few times before setting it.
- You can replace an existing gesture at any time by simply drawing a new one.
- When defining a gesture, only the initial click needs to be inside the box. You can go outside of it when drawing, so draw the gesture at the size that feels natural for real-world use.
