Bonkak Posted January 15, 2005 Report Share Posted January 15, 2005 Is it possible to run a macro that will record text until the middle mouse button is pressed, then paste the text into a different program? May not be too clear, but here's an example of what I'm looking for: 1) Run the macro 3) Macro begins to copy word into clipboard 2) Type <INSERT WORD or PHRASE here> in program 3) Click Middle Mouse Button to end copy 4) Macro types the text: "The word or phrase you have chosen to copy is: <INSERT WORD or PHRASE here>" 5) End Macro What I'm mainly interested in doing is being able to type a name that the macro will remember. Once you are done typing the name, the macro will then type a sentence with the name you have just typed. For example, I want a macro that will allow me to enter a name (without bringing up a seperate prompt window) and then use this name in a sentence. So essentially I run the macro, I type in something like "Jon Doe", click the middle mouse button, and will then type the sentence: "Hello, Jon Doe. How are you doing?" The reason why I want to do this without bringing up a seperate prompt window asking for input from the user is so that I can do this in programs that require me to be in fullscreen (ie: Games). Bringing up a seperate prompt window will minimize the game and show the prompt, which I don't want happening. Thanks in advance, Bonkak Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
