Re: Cursor Highlighter

@JTG

I'm glad you like it!

Somehow, I think I actually didn't test the cursor focus on a multi monitor setup. Thanks for reporting the issue, I'll look into it the next time I'm on my computer.

Re: PowerPoint Inking Toolbar

burque505 Yeah, I don't know what's going on. I even recoded it on Win7 using 64-bit AHK (not that I thought it would make a difference, but one never knows) and it gives the same behavior. For the sake of the program I'll just choose a different icon (that hopefully will encode better) but I am ve...

Re: PowerPoint Inking Toolbar

@burque505

Thanks for reporting it and doing some investigating. Indeed, it seems like this error is specific to Windows 7... At least, the script works on all versions of the latest AHK on Windows 10, and this message only pops up with AHK Unicode 64 on Win 7. I'll investigate!

Re: PowerPoint Inking Toolbar

@burque505

Are you using the latest version of AHK? I had the same error message when using a Win 7 computer with an old version of AHK, but the message doesn't show up after updating to the latest version of AHK.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just uploaded version 2.1 in which I added a Fileexist check for the .ini file. Hopefully this will make the script more user-friendly.

Re: DIMMER BOX

Nice script! Couple of suggestions that I think would make it more useful:
- anchor the overlay to the dimmed window so that they move and resize together
- destroy the overlay if the dimmed window is closed

Re: Right click on GUI button --> Action

I think you could still do it more simply using the built-in GuiContextMenu which stores the control's name when you right-click on the button (and then you can use if statements). This is basically a simplified version of garry's code: #SingleInstance, Force SetBatchLines, -1 Gui,2: Add, Button, x1...

Cool, I'm glad it works for what you need. I put that tester together a long time ago and actually didn't really look at it before posting it here but there may be some extra stuff that is not necessary in what I posted. Sorry, I don't have time to check, this end of the world thing is keeping me bu...

Re: Moveable Gui with NoActivate Topic is solved

Does this work for what you need, without the use of a toggle? I haven't optimized it, so when you launch it just activate any other window, and then the Gui should be movable without being activated, #SingleInstance, force SetBatchLines -1 Gui, Main: Margin, 0, 0 Gui, Main: +LastFound -Resize +Hwnd...
