Window Activation Works in Test Run but not HotKey


Recommended Posts

I have a simple copy and paste macro that copies test from one application into a %T[1]% and %T[2]% variable ad then pastes this text into another application.

 

When I runf the macro with the HotKey it does not activate the notepad window

 

When I use the Test Run (debug) button the macro works fine.

 

I have included a Wait for Window Title line but still the macro does not work.

 

Any ideas?

 

Here is the macro:

 

Window Activate: wordpad

Wait for Window Title: wordpad

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <SHIFT><END>

Clipboard Copy

Delay: .5 seconds

Variable Set String %T[1]% from the clipboard contents

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <HOME>

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <DOWN ARROW>

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CTRL><SHIFT><DOWN ARROW>

Clipboard Copy

Delay: .5 seconds

Variable Set String %T[2]% from the clipboard contents

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <HOME>

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <CTRL><SHIFT><DOWN ARROW>

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): <DOWN ARROW>

Delay: .2 seconds

Window Activate: Untitled - Notepad

Wait for Window Title: Notepad

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): %T[1]%

<ENTER>

Delay: .2 seconds

Text Type (Simulate Keystrokes): %T[2]%

I'd be happy to try it but please post the code so that I don't have to key all those commands in from scratch.
