The following video explain an Mac automation for how I quickly switch back and forth between applications. This tip is for those who are already familiar with BetterTouchTool and Keyboard Maestro (affiliate link).

Keyboard Maestro Macro

Here’s the set up for Keyboard Maestro macro. I assigned a hotkey, and then mapped that hotkey to the BetterTouchTool finger gesture.

BetterTouchTool Trigger

For the BetterTouchTool set up, you can assign a different finger gesture if you like. I found that the 3 Finger Clickswipe Up worked best. (See my course about BetterTouchTool for more tips like this one.)
