mptrauber Posted January 30, 2010 Report Share Posted January 30, 2010 Hello all, I'm completely new to macros and Macro Express and admittedly unaware of the breadth of what can be done with them. But I have a need that I suspect Macro Express can fill and wanted to ask those who would definitively know. I don't have a big budget and was hoping to use something like MacroExpress with an existing commercial program to get this done. Much of the backbone of what I need to do, as described below, I can now do, for instance with One Note by MS. So, here it is: I need to fill out a form that has 4 sections. The sections are just running lines of text. I'd like to use my tablet pc. I want to create icons that depict things I would usually type into the form as sentences and paragraphs. (As an example, clicking an icon depicting a wall with a "no sign"over it would insert: "A wall was removed according to regulations and approved by my supervisor." I would group the icons according to the section (of the four) they belonged to and produce the form by: 1) opening up a form that would auto-date 2) select a section tab 3) select icons that auto-append one of several pre-set but syntactically equivalent pieces of text it randomly selected into that section 4) have the form auto-append to the last one A possible complication is that many of the icon-to-text macros would need to pause for input generated by (in this case) tapping other icons. Am I barking up the wrong tree or do you guys think can it be done with MacroExpress? Thanks very, very much in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
