Re: EitherMouse 0.8 - Multiple mice, individual settings...

Hi, I've just discovered your script, and it's something I've needed for a long time. I'd love to get it working. My need is to be able to have a regular mouse on the right side of my keyboard and a trackball on the left side, and have the cursor speeds set differently for them, because their native...

Autocorrect script typing first letter twice in OneNote for Windows 10

I've used the Autocorrect.ahk script for years in all kinds of applications without ever having a problem. I have just switched from OneNote 2016 to OneNote for Windows 10 because Microsoft is phasing out OneNote 2016, and is only adding new features to OneNote for Windows 10. OneNote for Windows 10...

Re: Script to move app to other monitor and go full screen—almost working ...

HI, Thanks for that suggestion. I tried putting WS_MAXIMIZE := 0x1000000 before, after, and both before and after the WinMaximize command, but it didn't fix the behavior. I'm not sure if that's what you were suggesting, but it's what I gleaned from the link you sent. Would you let me know if I misin...

Script to move app to other monitor and go full screen—almost working ...

Hi, I have two identical monitors running at 3140 x 2160. I often want to take one full screen app and move it to the other monitor in full screen mode. Without AHK this takes several keystrokes. I've attempted to write a script to do this with one key combination. Below is the script for moving fro...

Having trouble using if Winactive to only run if one of a set of particular windows is active

I want to assign the right Alt key to execute a "Ctrl+Del" keystroke, but only if Word, OneNote, or Scrivener is running. Otherwise I want to have the right alt key function as it normally does. As written, it executes in all apps, and I can't figure out why. Here's the code: if WinActive(ahk_exe WI...

Streamdeck interfering with hotstrings and hotkeys

I just got a Streamdeck and found that if I run an application from Streamdeck (e.g., Word), my hotkeys and hotstrings don't work. If I run the application from Windows directly they work fine. If I load (or reload) the AHK scripts from Streamdeck, the scripts work within applications launched by St...

ahk_exe reference stopped working with new install of zotero

I have a number of scripts that execute only if the open source citation manager Zotero is running. The scripts have worked on all of my computers for years. But today I did a clean install of Zotero on a new computer, and the Zotero-specific scripts don't work. All of my other application-specific ...

Re: AHK ignoring #IfWinActive Topic is solved

Perfect, thanks! I'd copied the code but wasn't familiar with the specifics of the Hotkey command. Much appreciated!

AHK ignoring #IfWinActive Topic is solved

The classic autocorrect.ahk file has the following code for converting two consecutive capital letters into one cap followed by a lowercase letter. It works great. However, I'd like to have it only operating in one application—Scrivener, the software I use for writing. For some reason, #IfWinActive ...

Can you embed a call to a script in a hotstring?

I'd like to create a hotstring that formats the text. For example:

::btw::
call script to turn on italics
by the way
call script to turn off italics


Is anything like that possible?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide!
