Random Mouse Distance in Keyboard Maestro

Here’s one way to¬†choose a random item in a select list using just mouse movements and a random number. If you’re trying to do this in a browser there are cleaner ways to do it (javascript, chrome/safari actions, etc.), but for general usage across¬†many applications this is a pretty universal solution.


I was surprised to find that you can type variables into the tiny coordinate text fields. They get bigger when you do.

When executed, this will select a random item (excluding “- None -“) from the select list.
