I've created app launchers for certain apps in Automator and assigned keyboard shortcuts from the Keyboard Preferences menu.

When I use these shortcuts I get a 1/2 a second delay. It seems like it's using the menu Services sub-menu to run the script and that seems to cause the delay.

Is there any way to circumvent this and run it immediately?


  • I also have this problem. Not sure if the delay is a menu issue, maybe it is taking some time to load the scrip from the HD. Oct 16, 2018 at 1:44
