I am wondering if there is a way to get a global hotkey to open up the DTPO search window from anywhere in the OS. This would be similar behaviour to that which is built into other applications such as Wunderlist, Fantastical, OmniFocus, as well as DT’s own Sorter.
If there isn’t a setting to establish a hotkey, then:
- Is this scriptable (I am reasonably okay with AppleScript but I am not familiar enough to know exactly the possibilities).
- If it is neither natively possible nor scriptable, I think it would be a great feature to add.
For example, regularly I need to attach a file from DT to an email in Mail.app to a message in an existing thread. This rules out the use of the button in DT since that creates a new thread. Ideally I’d simply invoke the global hotkey for searching DT to bring up the search window, search for the desired file, and drag it from the search window to the email.
Currently I have to switch from mail to DT, invoke the cmd-shift-f, enter my search, then drag the result to the mail message which may be on a different desktop (or, if not, then at least buried under many DTPO windows).
Interested in your workarounds or potential solutions!
