Alexis Posted October 19, 2009 Report Share Posted October 19, 2009 I may be one of the few who extensively use the shortkey activation to create autotextfunctionality. So those macros are always global and consists mainly of texttype commands. Sometimes i use TABs also for jumping to another textfield in emails etc. However often nothing happens or just a part of the text is pasted. Results can be described as random. I waited long before posting this as i was searching for conditions when this happens. Unfortunatley i could not find any. All i found out is that Text Type commands with "Simulate Keystrokes" are working much better than with "Use Clipboard". But those are not suitable for a longer text. The attached example (Shortkey is shky) for a mail should paste an email adress in the To-field jump than to the subjectfield paste one there, than go to emailtext and paste it there. So you should start it in Outlook in the To-field of a new email. I already slowed the macro down with delay commands etc. What actual happens is: In Outlook only the emailadress and the subject is pasted. At least most of the time. In Word (for reference) everything works fine. If you try the example try it minimum 5 times. On my systems it works roughly 30%. Has anybody made a similar experience? BTW i use Suffix Keys, so the macro starts when the space bar is pressed right after "shky".
