About myPoint

When myPoint is running, no icon is shown in the Dock.
The only visible part is a small icon in menu bar extras - so called myPoint icon:

Working with the Hotkey editor

The editor operates in two modes - Edit and View - and two states - Normal and Hint. The Normal state is by default. The Hint state occurs when the mouse hovers over the editor or in other circumstances.
View mode
Depending on the state the Editor displays current hotkey combination (in normal state) or the suggestion to change the hotkey (in Hint state).
Hint state: when the mouse hovers over the editor.
Enter Edit mode: click inside editor, or press Space while editor is focused.
Edit mode
Normal state: the editor shows key symbols if at least one of the following modifier keys is pressed: Shift, Control, Option, Command.
Hint state: if no modifier key is pressed, or if the mouse hovers over the star button in the right side of the editor.
Exit Edit mode: entering an acceptable hotkey combination or pressing ESC key.
Acceptable hotkeys:
  • A regular key combined with one or more modifier keys;
  • F-key (F1 to F19) with or without modifier keys;
  • Note: if only a regular button is pressed nothing happens.
