"Wait for the Hot Key to be Released before Activating"

Recommended Posts

Assume I have a working macro, and have checked the "Wait for the Hot Key to be Released before Activating" checkbox.


Everything works fine.


When I uncheck the checkbox, one of two things happen:


1. The macro activates as soon as I press the key combination. Yay.


2. The macro does nothing.


What are the conditions that cause the macro to fail when the checkbox is unchecked?

Most of my macros are HotKey and I have never had such a problem. Then again I usually wait for release. However I just created a simple one and it work fine.


What does your macro do? Can you create a simple example that demonstrates only the problem. I'm thinking a simple macro that only displays a text box with the hotkey configured as you describe. Then post if here with a description of what you witness.

If the macro does nothing how do you know it activates? What is your macro doing?


I will try to create a sample, and post it here in the next day or two.


My initial sense is that it usually happens when the hotkey involves more than two keys, e.g., Ctrl + Alt + Q.
