Keyboard Maestro Macros: Measure Window and Set Window Size

For my screencasts I typlically need to “measure windows” so I know if a certain arrangement of the windows of an app fit into the frame I’m recording. I would normally use xScope, but… you know… If Keyboard Maestro can do what I need, why not?

The first macro basically measure the front window’s size and displays the size as Growl message.

The second one first takes the size of the frontmost window and displays its size in the “Prompt User for Input” action.

UPDATE: I issued a minor update for this macro. The input is now split into two text fields, makes this easier to use.



Note: Both macros are included in the download.
