MagicPrefs: Gesture to hide current app
Does anyone know how to define a gesture with MagicPrefs to hide the currently active app? It offers the possibility to hide "all other apps", but not the current one.
When I try to define a keyboard shortcut, pressing Command+h in the shortcut definition box actually hides the system preferences app, but does define the shortcut in the app.

...because I ran into this, and couldn't find an easy answer:
Save this as an AppleScript using AppleScript Editor (just paste it into the window):
tell application "System Events" to ¬ set visible of first application process ¬ whose frontmost is true to false
Then go back into the gesture's drop down and the script should be listed at the bottom.
Bit of a long way round but works for me.
