Newbie: Macro only runs properly if target app is not in focus


Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,


I've been playing with ME for 30 minutes now and I love it. I have a newbie question. I've created a macro that clicks the "clear" button in a application, enters specific text into 2 different text boxes and then clicks search. I noticed that the macro runs correctly if the target application is not selected (not the active window). When it is the active window and I press the Hotkey, it doesn't click clear, it enters the text to the text boxes, but doesn't search.


I'm not receiving any error messages when running the macro, it's just not working properly. I appreciate any assistance.



Thank you,
