Me Typing Out <ctld>2<ctlu> Rather Than

Hi, I have a macro that contains a section

 

<TEXTTYPE:<CTRLD>2<CTRLU>><WAITPB><PAUSE>

 

In the applicaction this is invoked from, CTRL-2 takes the cursor to a particular edit field in a particular pane.

 

When I invoke the macro, instead of typing CTRL-2 to change the focus the macro types "<CTRLD>2<CTRLU>" into the currently focused edit-box :huh: . (If I manually hit CTRL-2 from this same edit box, without using the macro, it shifts focus properly).

 

I'm using MacroExpress 3.0.4.1

 

Why does it do this, and how can I make it stop?

 

(I had a similar proplem in an earlier section of the macro, which was solved by deleting and retyping the commands :blink: That didn't work here.)

 

Thanks! B)

Hello Linda!

 

The code doesn't look correct.

<TEXTTYPE:<CTRLD>2<CTRLU>><WAITPB><PAUSE>

It looks like, for whatever reason, there is an extra separator character (""). The command should look like this as viewed from the Direct Editor:

<TEXTTYPE:<CTRLD>2<CTRLU>>

Which would answer why it works okay after reentering the command. You could have also used the simpler form of:

<TEXTTYPE:<CONTROL>2>

Weird- I've just been using the scripting editor- not editing directly in the Direct Editor- what would cause the command to be corrupted internally like that? :huh: It seems to be happening a lot today- a lot of odd bugs that sometimes go away when I re-type the commands.

 

 

You could have also used the simpler form of:
<TEXTTYPE:<CONTROL>2>

We've found with the software we're using that this sometimes works and sometimes doesn't-- so I've been doing the up-downs just to be safe.
