ME3.9 types characters, will not perform commands in word processor.

Recommended Posts

ME3.9 types characters, will not perform commands in word processor. In open office writer ME3 will not perform a command like ALT EDIT SELECT ALL. It will not perform the CTRL+A shortcut either. Instead ME3 places a new paragraph at the point the cursor is at. These two commands will work manually and  will type in letters, numbers, etc. I tried reinstalling ME3, that did not solve the problem. I assigned the macro to be CTRL+6, Open Office does not have a shortcut of CTRL+6 to conflict. CTRL+A is assigned internally to Open Office Writer and works manually. Anyone know how to restore normal operation.

Try using Ctrl+a, not Ctrl+A. When you use Ctrl+A Macro Express sends: <Ctrl Down><Shift Down>a<Shift Up><Ctrl Up>. Many programs will not respond to that.
