Possible to change font color via keyboard

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to change font color via the keyboard vs. having to use the mouse to select a color from the popup color dialog?


I'm also struggling with a way to have the popup color dialog remember specific color selections in the palette at the bottom of the color dialog.

I was unable to find a built-in keyboard shortcut for specific colors, so here is what I did:

  1. Create my own color palette in the Mac Color Panel
    1. Add only the colors I often use

  2. Use Keyboard Maestro to create a macro with a dropdown input for user color selection

I will post my KM macro on the KM forum site, and then add a link to it here.

I should have it posted within an hour or so, but give me until tomorrow to be safe.


Note to Evernote Design Team:  It would be very helpful if you would add font color and highlight color to the menu like Outlook 2011 Mac does.

Please see the below post on the KM forum site for a description and download link for this KM Macro:

As promised, I have updated my post above with the link to the Keyboard Maestro forum page with the macro.
