  1. Hello again, just wanted to say that the Issues are still present. What I also noticed is that every time the above happens, the MEX process starts to duplicate itself. I can't even kill the processes because I get an "Access Denied" error message, only a reboot helps. Is there a way to avoid it?
  2. Hello everyone, is it possible to resize a Window in Win7 and/or Win10 beyond the screen resolution? i.e. if I use the "Window Resize" function to resize a Window to 2000px height, it won't resize to more than my screen resolution height of 1080px. Is there any way to get around this limitation?
  3. Hey everyone, is there a way to save clipboard information to a variable, which can be later (through the variable) pasted without losing formats/attributes? Example: I copy a table in word, save the clipboard contents as string variable. Later I paste the content of the string variable but it only pastes the text without the table or any kind of format. So is there a variable type that can store all the information the clipboard has and not just the plain text? If not, is there a workaround? Thanks in advance.
  4. I just installed Macro Express Pro Version 6. MEX Pro jumped from 4.9 to so i expected quite something. You need a new license. This is the update information: - New redesign of the program makes it easier than ever to use Macro Express Pro.- Support for ultra-high definition / 4K monitors.- Improved the navigation in dialogs and windows.- Command dialogs are now resizable so you can see more info without scrolling.- Many commands now allow entering multiple lines of information.- Themes allow choices that adjust the look and feel of the program. Choose from predefined or custom t
  5. I'm back again, the Problem is still there but I could narrow it down. I use MLO (MyLifeOrganized) and got a Macro that activates the Window and clicks on an Entry. The Macro freezes when it executes the Mouseclick and my Mouse is in "Drag & Drop" Mode. I don't get any Error Message, but it has something to do with the Mouseclick that MEX executes being interpreted as "Drag & Drop" for some odd reasons. This seems to happen in MLO under Win10. (on Win7 it runs just fine) I need to Terminate Macro Express completely to stop that Macro at that point. If I hover over Forre
  6. Problem disappeard after restarting pc. Sorry and Thank you.
  7. In Windows 10 Pro Macros are not performed. Instead say seem kind of halted. A message appears that they are halted in line 3 for example. Hoovering over Forrest display that several macros are running but they are not performed. Why? Every macro operated flawlessly under Win 7.
  8. Thanks acantor and Cory for your input. @acantor: Yeah i guess its just like that. So it´s good to have in mind that sometimes there is still a keyboard shortcut even without accelerator keyhints. For automating with MEX keyboard shortcuts are much more reliable and faster than pressing Menus (simulating mouseclicks) @Cory: Yes and now. MS translates a lot of the original/english language and sometimes pretty poorly. Most menus and also keycommands are translated. In Word for formatting text into Bold or Italic the german expressions are "Fett" and "Kursiv". And here the key short
  9. Interesting, than this example (H) does not work. To experience the same message i got (see my foto) with ALT, T i guess you need to press a letter which does not come up if pressing merely ALT and wating for the shortcuts to appear.
  10. I don´t think they behave different due to languages. Let´s find out. Two questions for english users: If you press merely ALT do you see the letterhint "H" anywhere? What happens if you press ALT + H?
  11. Does anybody see the difference between Way 2 and Way 3?
  12. Well they are hidden. I use the german Excel Version. For renaming the sheet the correct sequenze is actually Alt + T, B, U in the german Version. I do distinguish between the accelerator way and the sequenze way. In my last post i numbered those ways 2 and 3. There is a distinction, cause when i press only the ALT Key indead a lot of numbers and letters appear but not one letter "T"! After pressing T instead a message appears (siehe picture). This is a complete different behaviour than using merely the ALT Button and waiting for accelerator key hints to appear which change and are narrowed do
  13. Dear Acantor, actually there are 3 Ways. 1. Preprogrammed Keycombinations like CTRL + SHIFT + B for Bold in Word (same in Excel) which you can change (in Word) 2. Accelator Keys, which you mentioned as 1. in your last post 3. And Keycombinations liket ALT + H, O, R mentioned above. This was new for me. I will name it "Nonaccelator, serial Shortcut" for now. I did google it but was only able to find single shortcuts but never a complete reference of those hidden "Serial shortcuts". Could you provide a link here with a reference if there is any? I guess a lot of MEX User are
  14. Thank you very much Cory and acantor!! I like the idea of copying the Sheetname while editing then aborting the edit. You don´t loose focus of the current activated cell. Great idea!! But how did you know the keycombination Alt + h, o, r for renaming sheets? Is there a documentation of those keycombinations. I mean it´s quite a different shortcut-approach then just pressing ALT and waiting for EXCEL to display the options. Actually T is not listed if you press ALT once. There are so smart people here!
  15. Hey there, is there a way for Macro Express Pro to get sheet names from an excel file that has multiple sheets? Thanks in advance.
  16. Well, i guess it´s worth suggesting that MEP gets clipboard variables, no?
  17. Actually i would love to have also the opportunity that a MEP variable saves the whole clipboard (without cleaning)
  18. @ rberq. You may check what format is "Standard" in your word version. This definition ist stored in the document or in new documents in the Normal.dot(m) in Templates. It´s likely that Word uses this format. Also consider that you can define in word which format (source or target) it should use if pasting from other or same (Word) Applications in the preferences of word. By pressing CTRL after pasting you can change that default behaviour manually.
  19. That´s what i thought. The clipboard as a global utiltiy but all those applications are quite interpreting what to do with the content of the clipboard. Sometimes quite unpredictable. Thank you for offering further understanding and help.
  20. Thank You, great advice as always!!! It works in Wordpad using a .rtf-file. I never would have thought of this. It must have something to do with the fileformat (doc vs rtf) and what actually is the content of a rich text clipboard. I don´t really understand it but am i happy you showed me the way.
  21. Greetings, when I use "Text Type --> Paste Rich Text" in a Word Document it also changes the Pagelayout. Is there a way to prevent that from happening? Atm I use "Use Cliptboard and Paste Text" instead which works fine but doesn't let me pre-format text.
  22. MyLifeOrganized is a program where you can manage your Tasks. In the example above {4B3B139D-0A06-4389-A5F2-FD5D120D45EF} is the ID of an task. With the command above you can select specific tasks in MLO. The command aktivates MLO and selects the task (one of thousands ;-)
  23. I'm using MEP on a Surface Pro 4, it runs on a 2736 x 1824 (267 PPI) resolution. The overall Font of MEP is pretty small and the Icons are TINY. Is there a way to change the size of the Buttons/Icons and the font size of the MEP explorer the same way you can change the font size of the script editor?
