stevecasper Posted January 15, 2009 Report Share Posted January 15, 2009 I've copied this post from (what should be) the end of the following thread on the ME 3.x forum: http://pgmacros.invisionzone.com/index.php...amp;#entry13351 Terry and Steve - I have used the <CTRL>a technique with Internet Explorer, never with Firefox. On some IE screens I found it is necessary to click once with the mouse, somewhere inside the window, before doing the <CTRL>a. Without the click, nothing gets highlighted and therefore nothing is copied to the clipboard. Depending how the browser screen was built, it might be necessary to click in different areas, say near the top as opposed to the middle, etc. Hi Bob, I hadn't been using Firefox for this macro (even if I had, the macro should still work, though). However, after your post, I felt it best to give other browsers a try. I have duplicated the error in IE, Google Chrome, Firefox, and Opera. I am clicking in the window before running the macro, and the Ctrl+a is highlighting the entire page. The error is occurring because the macro is not recognizing Text variable %T%, which is just silly. Steve, That error about variable type is exactly what I was getting earlier. Yet as you probably saw from my subsequent reply to Stan, a repeat run of the same macro a few hours later did not give the error. This sort of inconsistent behaviour is why I feel that ME 3 Pro is still flakey in the variables area, but without being able to pin it down. -- Terry, East Grinstead, UK Hi Terry, I am back after several hours and at first it ran fine, but then I realized that ME 3 was running again (I'd rebooted in the mean time). As soon as I suspended ME 3, the error returned. When your macro started working again, are you sure it wasn't ME 3? What really gets me is that the error does not occur if I run the macro within the message box. Just the regular web-page. The macro works in Notepad as well. The error seems to be HTML-related, I guess. It's late, I'm confused. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
