Samsung S23 One Hand Operations+ Actions

This Samsung's app has quite a few very cool features/actions that I would love to be able to trigger using Macrodroid.
Right now, I can set up handles and then simulate the UI interaction with Macrodroid, but I'd prefer if I can use intents or something like that to directly call these actions without simulated UI interaction.
Does anyone know how I could proceed forward?

I also have a S23 and would be interested in an alternative method.

I haven't found a setting in system, secure or global.

I use Nova launcher and use the screenshot macro to toggle one handed mode.

It uses UI actions, only takes a fraction of a second to change the mode, but needs the screen on.

@vdb86 is writing about samsung's one hand operation+ app where you can set handles on the edges of the screen to perform different actions.
Its funny cause this app is actually the answer for your question too.
You can set it to enable one handed mode for exemple when swiping to the right from handle placed on left and then you could use macrodroid with any trigger to perform ui interaction (swipe right from the left where handle is placed) to enable one handed mode and here is what the topic is about - other way to perform actions from one hand operation+ app without using ui interactions.
I don't think its possible for now.
I am glad we can actually do it with ui interaction at least.
Here's screenshot of how the app looks like and how I have it configured for now (each handle allows for short/long swipe up/down and left or right (based on handles position)
I am a fan of this app!

Oops I didn't see the +!
I've Installed the app and it looks very useful.

It indeed is! Once you set it up and slowly start getting used to it, soon you won't be able to live without it 😂
It has some useful features thanks to the fact that its made by samsung like task switcher.
It makes using such a large phone with one hand possible - or I'd even say easy.
Here's my configuration in screenshots.
When it comes to macrodroid and its integration with app you can add multiple very small handles since using ui interaction allows you to aim precisely on chosen handle with x,y coordinates but I don't see too many cases for integration since in most cases performing the gesture by yourself is easier than any macrodroid's trigger.
There is one case I mentioned another time - opening app in pop up window. Macrodroid can't do it alone but can with this app for exemple

I have an S23 as well and I absolutely love OHO+. It's actually what made me give up my Pixel and move to Samsung. Well, GoodLock in general was reason enough to make the switch.

Anyway, to answer what I think is your question, if you can create a home screen shortcut then you can trigger that shortcut using OHO+. That's how I'm currently triggering the Panels app from the Play Store (not a big fan of Samsung's Edge Panel). The only catch to doing it this way is

1) the shortcut has to stay on your home screen for the OHO+ action to function and
2) the shortcut has to be on the home screen you're actively using. I don't mean the home page, but it has to be on the home screen of the app you have selected as your default home. I tried creating a shortcut on Samsung's launcher and then set Nova as my default launcher and the shortcut stopped functioning. In the end I just stuck the shortcut in a folder on my dock with some other apps.

You can long-press the macro in MacroDroid and create a home screen shortcut and then should be able to add it to One Hand Operation+.

Damn. I had no idea we can even trigger macros with this app. For now I was using pop up widget screen or whatever its called.
Its weird that the shortcut has to be created by long pressing the macro. I had a lot of shortcuts added in different ways and it couldn't see it.
Thanks for the info!

Although the problem in this topic originally was to make it work another way around. Using macrodroid to trigger actions from one hand operation+ without using ui interactions to perform needed gesture.

Sorry, I see I did have the workflow backwards. Unfortunately I don't know any way to trigger a One Hand Operation+ action from a macro. Is there a particular action you're trying to invoke?

Oh no. Its not me. I am fine with using ui interaction - gesture to simulate swiping and performing chosen handle action using macrodroid <- Thats so far the only way to do it I believe.

Apparently I was only half awake yesterday or something. I thought you were the OP. Anyway, hope it helped OP, or somebody along the way.
