Re: AHKCoordGrid - overlay grid of buttons to provide (a degree of) mouseless screen navigation

@DataLife Change 1 is straightforward Change 2 not so much! But I don't tend to use the grid in my browser, because cVim (in Chrome) is more convenient and allows you to display shortcuts (hints) for most of the clickable elements on webpages. I tried cVim on https://fritzsadventure.com/ and it does...

Prevent Hotstring Expanding when Type Hotstring + Number + EndChar

I'd like to prevent my hotstrings expanding when I type the hotstring, then a number, then an EndChar

eg one of my hotstrings is:
::gt::get
However, when I type 'gt1' then a space, the expansion is triggered, and gt1 is overwritten by 'get' (actually by 'gget').

Is there any way to avoid this?

Re: AHKCoordGrid - overlay grid of buttons to provide (a degree of) mouseless screen navigation

@Nextron That does sound like a good alternative. I've realized that cVim calls its dynamic shortcuts 'hints' (as do the other extensions which provide similar ones, eg pentadactyl, vrome, vimperator, and vimium) https://github.com/zsims/hunt-and-peck also looks useful - it provides similar hints fo...

Re: Any software exists to provide screen navigation via shortcut keys to overlay grid coordinates? Topic is solved

Thanks all @guest3456 - that looks similar to the Dragon NaturallySpeaking MouseGrid @Guest - I somehow couldn't get Mouse Numpad Grid to work @tidbit - This looks very useful. Again looks similar to the Speech Recognition ones, but more convenient to control it from the keyboard instead of by speec...

Re: AHKCoordGrid - overlay grid of buttons to provide (a degree of) mouseless screen navigation

That's a good ides, @gwarble. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution#Common_display_resolutions says that nearly 30% of users use resolution 1366*768 = 1,049,088 pixels. Using 4 alphabetic coordinates (AAAA-ZZZZ) would give 26*26*26*26 = 456,976 clickable points, which is not far off 1 for...

Re: how to trigger expansion of a Hotstring without moving cursor Topic is solved

Thanks Gregster, your solution works! I've added handling for the other 3 characters: ::brl:: ::mdr:: ::prs:: ::wsh:: abbr := {"prs":"Paris", "mdr" :"Madrid", "brl":"Berlin", "wsh":"Washington, D.C."} key := Substr(A_ThisHotkey, 3) Sendinput % abbr[key] If (A_endchar = A_space) Sendinput %A_space% e...

Re: how to trigger expansion of a Hotstring without moving cursor Topic is solved

You're right, Joe - I wouldn't save any keystrokes by using the context variable, so it wouldn't be worth the effort (though I appreciate your input, Gregster) It is a shame that it seems to be impossible just to add a non-typing character to the EndChars list. Here's an example of what I'm looking ...

Re: how to trigger expansion of a Hotstring without moving cursor Topic is solved

thanks both. Joe - yes, that's what I wanted. Gregster - I think your suggestion could possibly work, but it looks complicated! There isn't an easily defined context where I want to to use the 'non-moving' EndChar - I'd probably use it most often to correct things that I've mistyped, but this could ...

Re: how to trigger expansion of a Hotstring without moving cursor Topic is solved

Thanks Joe. But I actually do want my EndChars to be output / move the cursor on most of the time; it's just that occasionally, I need to expand my abbreviations without moving the cursor. I hoped I could do this via a special EndChar (maybe one that doesn't normally type anything, like 'Esc'). Apol...

how to trigger expansion of a Hotstring without moving cursor Topic is solved

I want to be able to press some key to trigger the expansion of a Hotstring (any of my Hotstrings), but avoid moving the cursor (ie leave the cursor in the same place, just after the end of the expansion, without actually outputting any visible character or whitespace). None of the default EndChars ...

Re: Any open-source text expansion abbreviations dictionary?

Thanks all for the suggestions.
Actually, I'm not so interested in autocorrect as in a large list of abbreviations and expanded words to help reduce the number of keystrokes taken to type anything.
That doesn't seem to exist out there, at least not for free!

Any open-source text expansion abbreviations dictionary?

I use AutoHotkey for text expansion, and I've built up a fair-sized dictionary of abbreviations (27k or so). Most I generated via a VBA script I wrote; the remainder I added manually. I may release mine whenever I get the chance to tidy it up, but does anybody know if a similar dictionary exists out...

Re: Any software exists to provide screen navigation via shortcut keys to overlay grid coordinates? Topic is solved

Thanks jeeswg, that script looks useful in its own right, and also as an example of how to move to coordinates.
What I still don't know how to do, however, is display the shortcut key combination for each coordinate
