I have written an Applescript to change screen resolutions. I have converted it to an APP. When I click on the icon, it works perfectly. However, I would like to assign it to a keypress. I have read tons of postings on the internet and I cannot get it to work. I am using High Sierra, but am wondering if this is the problem. Despite various not assigned key presses such as a four key press, still no luck. Here is what I have done:
- Enabled Automator in Accessibility Services.
- Saved my compiled script through Automator as an App. (works fine).
- Opened Keyboard Shortcuts, and TRIED to add the app as a service, but adding doesn't seem to show up. Seems like one time it did, but still didn't work.
- Opened Keyboard Shortcuts, and added to to Applications, and designate the keypress, but no go. It won't work
I have been told that if I add it to ~/library/services it will work but there are two folders:
System > Library > Services but this is locked and I tried to change the permissions and despite the fact that I am the only one on the computer, it says I don't have enough rights. Its my computer.. what gives?
Users > Lad > Library (hidden) > Services: added the apps. They do not show up on the Keyboard Shortcuts choices.
Am I doing something wrong?
