looping and halting a pretty complicated script

My job is essentially developing leads for sales. To do this I take a master list that is in Word ( doesn’t really matter what application the source file is in ) and, with the help of the good people on this forum, I ( really, you guys) developed a ahk script that double clicks on an item in the li...

Re: How to stop a script Topic is solved

Wait I just realized that the script does pause the function – rather than exiting. I can unsuspend the script with a couple of mouse clicks. Still I would love to hit F7 or F8 to reengage the function

Re: How to stop a script Topic is solved

I am using the following script that I got from mikeyww in another post to stop a script. I’ve got a great e number of keys remapped to do various things, and those keys include critical letters that are easily within reach (eg qwer) but occasionally I have to do some actual flat out typing. So I’m ...

Re: Inverting order of text copied to clipboard before pasting

Tried that too… The idea is that I have already copied something into the clipboard

Freddie Jones

And I want to hit F1 and It pastes as Jones Freddy

Don't worry about it guys it's me not you … Much better with MS word macros and probably get the desired result that way

Re: Inverting order of text copied to clipboard before pasting

This is literally what I put in the notepad file that I use to convert to executable scripts.

Forgive my ineptitude – sure it works I was born during the Eisenhwower administration

F1::

Return StrReplace(RegExReplace(name, "(.+) (.+)", "$2 $1"), ".")

Re: moving mouse to MS word cursor position

It’s working again and in fact it may have been working all along with the old v1 code – and I believe I am in version 1 – I think for the code to work properly I have to double mouse click at the top of the list and then it seems to work properly as it descends through the list. Don’t understand wh...

Re: moving mouse to MS word cursor position

I don’t think I’m being clear. When I say Microsoft Word cursor I mean that blinking thingamabob on the page that tells you where, if you type, the line where the text will go. Even though the mouse pointer is somewhere else on the page. Part of the code I am working on ends with moving the MS Word ...

Selecting text of a certain length for copy and paste

I would like to create a code that will invoke a function much like "extend selection" in MS Word (but cannot use that, because I need this when I am on a web page), and then move the selected text field a certain amount of characters to the left or right then copy the text. Is this possible? also, ...
