Re: How many keystrokes at once?

No, there is no such limit - but there is certainly a limit what a specific program can process in a short time (the key presses from your hotkey will occur in rapid succession). Perhaps the program you are sending it to, just isn't ready after the first {enter}, in the moment the second {enter} wil...

Re: launch firefox with a profile

I have no final conclusion, but so far, I got it to work somehow with absolute paths for the profiles. I created two test profiles via the profile manager ( by running firefox.exe -P at the command prompt; first shut down all running Firefox instances ), called "Test" and "test2". But the correspond...

Re: RPA sub forum

Yeah, that seems to be unintentional: The forum is visible/read-only for unregistered users/logged-out users, but completely invisible to logged-in users (who are not members of the group - who can still apply for membership in the Usergroups section of the control panel, though). I remember that it...

Re: Script draws letters - how to alter line thickness?

Regarding: Broken Link for safety I don't think you should have changed the license notice from AutomatedWriter.ahk! That is just the forum software applying anti-spam rules to new users (well, more precisely, users with low post counts). I think, NackJich could have done nothing to prevent it. I f...

Re: Output is different from input with Send and Sendinput

Try {text} mode for SendInput:

Code: Select all

Sendinput {text}(!)|(\?)|(:)|(;)

Re: Can an exclamation mark be used as hotkey?

This works for me with a hotstring : ::!up::Hello world It seems you are missing a : Or, do want to replace a string with : ? ::colon::: ; replaces "colon" with ":" But if you want to use a command like Send in a one-line-hotstring, you need to use the X option (AHK version 1.1.28+): :X:colon::Send :

Re: Can an exclamation mark be used as hotkey?

Either there is something to modify, then ! is a modifier - or there is nothing to modify, then ! is a !:

Code: Select all

!::msgbox
If you want to remap Alt alone, then you can use:

Code: Select all

alt::msgbox alt
Finally, Alt + !

Code: Select all

!!::msgbox

Re: Run .lnk file syntax help needed Topic is solved

What is the problem/error when you use Run, "G:\Games\Renault\Truck Racing\Bin\Shortcut to RTR.lnk" ? Have you tried the UseErrorlevel option of Run to see what is going on? Perhaps wrong working directory? If the lnk-shortcut is working via double-click, you might have to set the working directory ...

Welcome to the forum, I just saw that you added today your signature (and tried to add another link to the post above that you made yesterday) - well, we have no exact rules for signatures, but we don't like spam.

Re: Cannot use function key as hotkey

Creating hotkeys, left of the ::, you don't use { } :

Code: Select all

F6::
Send,a b c d e f g {Enter}{up}{right}{Space}
return
You only use { } with Send, for special keys.
