    I prefer to use an external script or program to get the source of a web page but if you prefer to CTRL+A and copy from the browser window (or use the control method) you can do so directly in Chrome. Simply prefix your URI with "view-source:" E.G. "view-source:http://bluepointdesign.com". Edge and Internet Explorer do not support this convention. I've only verified this works in Chrome and FireFox.

    Sixteen IF statements in all, to place a displayable text character into a text variable: If Variable %N1% = 0 Variable Set String %T10% "0" End If If Variable %N1% = 1 Variable Set String %T10% "1" End If .... If Variable %N1% = 10 Variable Set String %T10% "A" End If .... If Variable %N1% = 15 Variable Set String %T10% "F" End If

    The Macro Express Text Type command can type text much faster than the application receiving the text can process it. Keystrokes are buffered until the application can finish processing it. Problems can occur if the buffer fills up. Other problems occur if the macro is depending on something happening as a result of the items typed but it has not occurred yet. Sometimes a small delay works fine. Sometimes, however, a delay is not enough. When writing the sample macro "Type Special Characters" we discovered that the more information that is entered into a Notepad window the slower it responds. So, for example, the same delay that works with the first 100 lines of text will no longer work with lines 1200-1300. The Wait for Text Playback will wait until the buffer has been emptied before continuing. To see how this works open the "Type Special Characters" macro in the samples.mex macro file. This macro file should be copied to the folder in your documents folder where your macro files are located. It is also installed in the same folder as the Macro Express program files. If you are unable to find a copy of samples.mex it can be downloaded here: https://www.macros.com/samplemacrospro.htm. If you edit the Type Special Characters macro to disable the Wait for Text Playback commands it will not run correctly.

    You can include end of line character(s) when saving information to a text file. You should be able to save the end of paragraph character once you identify what that character is. The end of line character(s) differ depending on what computer system you are using. For Windows this would be CR followed by LF or CRLF. However, if your destination computer is Linux this may be LF and for Apple this may be only either CR. I will leave it to you to determine which specific character(s) you need for end of paragraph or end of line. To include these characters in your macros use the "Variable Set to ASCII Char" command. This is a sample from my macros that sets variables for CR, LF and TAB. Variable Set to ASCII Char 13 to %CR% Variable Set to ASCII Char 10 to %LF% Variable Set to ASCII Char 9 to %TAB% For more information about ASCII Characters enter "ASCII characters" into your preferred search engine.

    I do not know. Have you tried it? How about Macro Express? Try the "Set Window Order Always on top" command.

    This will remove the name that is contained in %T[2]% from variable %[T3]%. Variable Modify String: Replace "%T[2]%" in %T[3]% with "" // Leave the "Replace Text With" box empty
