If you tell Opus to run Snippy.exe, Opus will just run it with whichever arguments (if any) you tell Opus to pass to pass to it.
How Snippy.exe reacts to being run, and the arguments it is passed, is up to it. If it's not doing what you want when you run it then you need to look at the Snippy documentation (there's usually a section on command line arguments for tools that support them) or ask whoever supports Snippy for advice on how to run it.
Well, please allow me to reformulate my request --
How would I configure a "New Button" on any toolbar to fire a hotkey when mouse-clicked?
because I may choose to setup future scenarios like this -
in fact, I could envision ultimately making such a "New Button" into a 3-Button event.
Would I use the CLI type command along with arguments?
of course I can just reach up & push F8 as I usually do, &/or also bind it to a StrokeIt gesture,
but in this case I was/am seeking to understand how to configure/code? trickier stuff in Opus --
not being a programmer, but a 'wannabe' power-user, I keep trying to do my computing at the speed of thought, which is joyously manic
Just a little point of feedback - you guys have created such a pristine interface,
never mind the ability to quickly get lost going down the rabbit-hole of custom configurations!
I previously invested quite some time in xplorer2, which is also a very fine file manager,
and certainly has its devoted following -- nothing at all against it.
But the clarity of Opus' interface keeps me spellbound in place, as well as makes me alot more patient than I really am,
as I dig deeper into its capabilities.
You can probably use AutoHotkey in conjunction with DOpus to do exactly what you want. Of course there is a learning curve, but AHK is so powerful that it is time well spent. If you've never tried it, you should check it out.
