cden Posted December 23, 2007 Report Share Posted December 23, 2007 First of all, this is by far the best Macro Program i have tried, mainly for one reason: This program has a section with a big text area that basically says, "whatever you want in you macro, put it here". No other program does that (you have to actually TYPE the stuff you want to program it...horrifying when programming entire paragraphs). I also like that the program will put the text onto the clipboard first, then paste it where you want it. MUCH faster than replaying keystrokes. Anyway, here's what i'm trying to do: I want to be able to select a block of text, press a hotkey, and that selected text is now on the clipboard for THAT HOTKEY ONLY. So for example, if i select a block of text, and press ALT+WIN+G, that text will be saved to the G hotkey, which i can then paste with CTRL+WIN+G. If i select a block of text, and press ALT+WIN+H, that text will be saved to the H hotkey, which i can then paste with CTRL+WIN+H. And so on for every letter, and possibly the numbers, symbols, function keys, and number pad. What is the most efficient way of doing this? I'm good with programming simple text things using the Editor, but i can't figure out how to get a block of text to save to the program with a hotkey. EDIT: Did some searching. Would it be something like this? // <<< Do something to highlight the first piece of information >>> // Copy it to the clipboard Text Type: <WIND><ALTD>g<ALTU><WINDU> // Copy it to the clipboard Variable Set String %T1% from Clipboard To be honest, i don't where that would even go. But maybe it's on the right track. Do i need the ALTU and WINU parts? The real Windows Clipboard does not require you to release the CTRL key to copy/paste. It's much more efficient to hold the CTRL key and press the other keys. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
