  1. terrypin "t it looks to me as if you've not opened the activation properties properly". As seen on many websites you can only activation globally, and has for many years. "How long is it since you used the program before working on this particular task?" Years "Have you started afresh and written a simple macro that delivers keystrokes." Yes "- to other apps?" Yes, they work as usual. "- to this WP app?" Yes, they work as usual. .".and (in that new macro) explored changing activations, to ensure that you are following the correct steps." All other activations tried do not work either. In addition, from reading many other post on the subject the open office app can only be activation via the ME3 scope set to the default "global". This has also been the practice for many years. "Also check that your version is up to date" Yes it's 3.9. I doubt that it is backward incompatible. "And try re-installing ME3." Been there done that before I started the post. " Or, if your usage justifies it, upgrade to ME Pro." Upgradeding is not under consideration, as nobody can state whether the problem is due to ME3, Windows 10 or any third party app. I might as well just guess which one is the culprit. The command Text Type: <ALT>I is a pretty rudimentary command and always worked in the past. Don't know of anything that Pro can do that I could not already do, or want to do. "Good luck." Waiting for good luck could take a lifetime, that I don't have or want. Time to move on.
  2. This is still a lost cause, going no where. Spending alot of time and effort. Time to move on. Tnx
  3. Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CONTROL>a // Select all text Here's the code: <TEXT TYPE Action="0" Text="<CONTROL>a" _COMMENT="Select all text"/> This looks interesting. The ME help page does not find anything about simulated keystrokes. acantor Master acantor Do accelerator keys appear in any of the "tabs," or does a menu become selected, when you press Alt? Do the accelerator keys and/or menu selections disappear when you press Alt a second time? Yes it toggles them. The ME3 macro does not.
  4. acantor - pressing the alt key does exactly what is suppose to do. It toggles on and off the focus to the first tab. However this means nothing. What the issue is that a ME3 macro does not do that. Which screen shot? The document, the tabs, the macro explorer, the macro script or the keystrokes window? terrypin - The home key moves the cursor to the start of the line. The Ctrl+Home moves the cursor to home at the top of the document . Both just as expected. This means nothing too. The issue is that a ME3 macro won't do either. "if your starting screen is consistent in its layout, simply click on the first tab before further navigation." Which starting screen. I can easily click on the first tab. However that means nothing, what counts is that the ME3 macro does not click on anything.
  5. ME3.9 types characters, will not perform commands in word processor. In open office writer ME3 will not perform a command like ALT EDIT SELECT ALL. It will not perform the CTRL+A shortcut either. Instead ME3 places a new paragraph at the point the cursor is at. These two commands will work manually and will type in letters, numbers, etc. I tried reinstalling ME3, that did not solve the problem. I assigned the macro to be CTRL+6, Open Office does not have a shortcut of CTRL+6 to conflict. CTRL+A is assigned internally to Open Office Writer and works manually. Anyone know how to restore normal operation.
  6. I am creating a new macro that needs to select a specific tab in a row of tabs among other tasks. The menu for this has a row of tabs. When the menu opens it opens on the tab or dialog box last selected. It does not always open at the first tab in the row. I can repeatedly press the keyboard tab button until it places to the desired tab. In the macro I am creating I can enter a specific number of tab keyboard commands. This can only work if the menu opens in the same position last used which can be either a tab or a dialog box. Is there a way to work around it. For instance, can the macro be created with a single task to point the cursor to the bitmap desired position and click on it. Educate me on this. Thanks
  7. rberq, I copied and pasted the updated version into the direct editor. The result also did not work. I checked the c drive for a temp folder and found none. I'm concerned that this problems solution is beyond my limited level of computing technology (code). The old saying that "someone with a little knowledge is more dangerous than someone with no knowledge . This may apply to me. it might be best to abandon getting a fix. Tnx

  9. Bruce, I tried your suggestion. The Macro failed completely. It does look like it your method won't work on Windows 10. Tnx Rberg. I duplicated your macro for creating a list of windows. The macro failed to find any windows, or even an empty list. Tnx
  10. I'm running ver 3.9A on Windows 10 Home. I need to create a macro to launch a program and open it's window. The program responds with a message that the Window Title does not exist. I thought that the Window Title was found in the upper left hand corner each window. Is this incorrect. if not where is the title located. I also tried unchecking the title search box. It still failed to work. Is their another issue that causes this problem? Tnx
