vndaber Posted July 20, 2005 Report Share Posted July 20, 2005 Hello. I bought ME for more than a year now after extensive testing and comparing to many other macro apps. ME is more versatile than any other macro app, even from those with more than double price. One feature that made me decide to buy ME instead of other apps, is the "shortkeys". But I still have some questions on this feature. If I decide to assign the "`" shortkey (this is a key that it is useless to me), to the command "<ALTD><TEXTTYPE:<F4>><ALTU>", the keystroke is always received by the focused window. Under preferences> miscellaneous, I have tried all options available, but I couldn't find solution. Under preferences >shortkeys, I have the "Prefix Keys" box empty. For example I have set above command to apply in winrar, windows explorer, MS word, etc. When I press "`" in winrar, the windows closes, but the keystroke is always received first. Same in MS word, if I open a new MS word document and without writing anything press "`" (to send the command <ALT> + <F4>) the MS word is always receiving the keystroke and asks me if I want to save the changes. Same if I use hotkey <F1> for the command "<ALTD><TEXTTYPE:<F4>><ALTU>", instead of shortkey. Whenever I press <F1>, the active app always receives the keystroke first. The result is the help will open and closes immediately. This means that the <F1> is received by the active app first, opens the help file and afterwards the ME sends my command to the active app which is the help file and not the app that I want to close. Any help would be much appreciated. May be this is irrelevant but I gave higher priority to ME than the default (i.e. 2048 KB) but this also didn't help. Also I tried remap the "`" key to space " " but this had similar results. Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
