  1. I had the same problem. The dialog is coming up under other windows so you can't see it. Kevin told us the solution here.
  2. This was one of the few problems I've had since I switched over to Pro. Maybe it's a known issue - the price we have to pay in order to have the new unlimited variables feature? To get around it, I launch my browser and text type the address directly into the address bar, which adds a second or so, but works fine. Maybe it would be possible to add an option to tell Macro Express Pro not to look for variables in the website address?
  3. Right clicking on the 'running man' icon in the system tray aborts the macro for me. Have you tried setting up an abort hotkey? You can do it in the preferences > playback > miscellaneous.
  4. No, the 'wait for webpage' command in Pro only works with IE. I agree that it would be nice to have it work with Firefox, but there are ways to determine when a page has loaded in Firefox, for example waiting for the Stop button to grey out. No command for triple left mouse click, but you could simply do three single mouse clicks in a row.
  5. You could use a maximize window command after the web site command, or use the launch program command instead. <PROGRAM LAUNCH Path="C:\\Program Files\\Internet Explorer\\iexplore.exe" Mode="\x02" Parameters="http://www.macroexpress.com/" Default_Path="TRUE" Wait="1" Get_Console="FALSE"/>
  6. There is no such limit in Pro - you can make new variables as you need them.
  7. I had the same problem. During the import process MacroExpress Pro locked up and had to be restarted. After a few attempts I got it to work and successfully imported all my version 3 macros.
  8. Wow, I've been looking forward to this! The new features sound amazing. Can't wait to try it.
  9. No, this is the first time I have come across the idea of two mice on one computer. Interesting. I would say the best idea is to set up Teamplayer and test how Macro Express handles it.
  10. On my computer it is: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\SharedAccess\Parameters\FirewallPolicy\StandardProfile\EnableFirewall Set it to 0 to disable Windows firewall, or 1 should you want to use it. I prefer to use Comodo firewall.
  11. All the versions of Setpoint (Logitech's mouse software) I've used allow you to set any mouse button to type a keyboard key - for example backspace - but they don't repeat as you hold. You just get one keystroke for every mouse button click. You can set the mouse buttons to type key combinations to trigger MacroExpress macros, which may be a work around. I have various macros set to the extra buttons on my mouse.
  12. Sure, you can use the 'Set string from prompt' command, like this: <LAUNCHNO3:0:0012Untitled - Notepad<LAUNCH:C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe><TVAR2:01:02:FEnter wordFFCenter:Center><TEXTTYPE:the %T1% is weird>
  13. Here is how I would do it: <ASCIIC:95:1:13><ASCIIC:96:1:10><TVAR2:95:01:%T95%%T96%><TVAR2:01:04:C:\Text Document.txt><TMVAR2:21:01:01:001:000:%T95%,><TMVAR2:17:01:00:000:000:C:\temp.txtF><ADFBEG:F10:001:000001:000001:C:\temp.txt><ADFEND><DOFILE:08:NN:C:\temp.txt>><TBOX4:T:1:CenterCenter000278000200:000:T1=%T1% T2=%T2% T3=%T3% T4=%T4% T5=%T5%> It reformats the file to comma delimited, then sets the variables from it using the ASCII file process command. Maybe someone else can suggest another method?
  14. You can do it by using the Text Type command, like this: <LAUNCHDEL2:1:00C:\WINDOWS\system32\cmd.exe><WAITWIN2:000010:000000:cmd.exe><TEXTTYPE:This is a test>
  15. A while ago I submitted this as a feature request, so lets hope it's included in Macro Express 4. For the time being, you need to set a sequence of keystrokes to select the menu item. If the menu item does not have a Alt shortcut, I usually use the arrow keys to move to it. Edit: You could also run a AutoIT script to directly select a menu item, something like this: <REM2:Put a linefeed in T95><ASCIIC:95:1:13><ASCIIC:96:1:10><TVAR2:95:01:%T95%%T96%><REM2:><REM2:Launch notepad><LAUNCHDEL2:1:00C:\WINDOWS\notepad.exe><WAITWIN2:000010:000000:Untitled - Notepad><REM2:><REM2:Set window title><TVAR2:01:01:Untitled - Notepad><REM2:><REM2:Set menu title><TVAR2:02:01:F&ormat><REM2:><REM2:Set menu item><TVAR2:03:01:&Font...><REM2:><REM2:Create the autoit script><TVAR2:04:01:#NoTrayIcon%T95%AutoItSetOption ("WinTitleMatchMode", 2)%T95%WinMenuSelectItem("%T1%", "", "%T2%", "%T3%")><TMVAR2:17:04:00:000:000:C:\Directly select menu item.au3F><REM2:><REM2:Run the autoit script><LAUNCHDEL2:1:00C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt3.exe<PARAM>"C:\Directly select menu item.au3"><REM2:><REM2:Delete and autoit script><DOFILE:08:NN:C:\Directly select menu item.au3>>
