nevada Posted December 1, 2004 Report Share Posted December 1, 2004 I have a mouse activacted macro. I have set Windows to use single clicking. I am using it with Opera 7.52 to click on links in web pages. I have a mouse activated program specific macro. The macro sets shift down to open the link in a new page. I have discovered that Opera gets the click and that Macro Express does not keep the click from Opera. I know this because I discovered that if I put a click in the macro, the link opens in two windows. Thus my macro consists of a shift down, a delay of 800 ms. empirically determined, and then a shift up and no mouse click. This macro works works about 60 % of the time. The first question that I have goes to how is a mouse activated macro supposed to work? Is the macro supposed to be something concurrently executed with what the application does on a click? Or, is Macro Express supposed to trap the click and pass on to the application only what the macro wants to do? Or is this not a question of what Macro Express is supposed to do but one of what the other programs do and whether or not they get ahead of Macro Express in the chain? I looked but could not find any settings anywhere apparently relating to these issues. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
