Re: New Homepage - Scheduled Next Friday (Feb. 3, 2017)

Wow, that video is the worst thing to have as THE featured video on the AHK homepage. 1. It's almost 3 full minutes of him talking about totally irrelevant stuff before he even mentions AutoHotkey. 2. When he does mention it, one of the first things he says about it is that it often gets detected as...

Re: Need help to rename a file (strip invalid chars) Topic is solved

Don't know what's wrong. It works for me in your exact situation: 1. Run 4GForce's code 2. Select the text "This:is|a*test" and press ^c 3. Click on a file in my file explorer window. 4. Press F2 (the filename is highlighted ready to be renamed) 5. Press #v (it renames the file to "Thisisatest") I'm...

Re: Need help to rename a file (strip invalid chars) Topic is solved

OK. I misunderstood what you meant by "Nothing was pasted from the clipboard". I thought you meant that nothing was pasted from the clipboard. You meant that was the actual text string that you copied and was pasted. Try running the script as administrator. It may not let you send text to that windo...

Re: Need help to rename a file (strip invalid chars) Topic is solved

It works for me. The way your script is written, you have to copy some text to the clipboard by highlighting it and pressing ^c to load the clipboard. Then press #v to paste it with the defined characters removed. The script doesn't load the clipboard for you. If you are pressing ^c and then ^v does...

Re: Need help to rename a file (strip invalid chars) Topic is solved

It won't work by pressing win+s because the hotkey is defined as win+v.

Re: Need help with imagesearch Topic is solved

It's probably because you need to put a Sleep at the bottom of the loop because your're performing the ImageSearch immediately after the PgDn. When you used the SetTimer, you are giving it some extra time between loops for the PgDn to complete (in effect, adding Sleep time).

Re: Can't open Autohotkey

In case you're wondering where you're supposed to find the "play" button to click, you won't have one if you're using Notepad or something like it to edit your script. You can only "click play" if you have also installed an editor with AHK-specific features, such as SciTE4AutoHotkey.

Do you need to use a certain web browser, or can you use Internet Explorer?

I don't have all of those fonts, but details of the "k" and "y" rule out Lato, Open Sans, Roboto, and Segoe UI.

Myriad Pro looks like a dead ringer to me.

+1. It would look much better and be more consistent branding.

Your ipad was most likely showing a cached version at first. Perhaps you refreshed it when it suddenly appeared correctly. I did the same on mine to see the update.

Re: Temporarily exclude title from ahk_group?

No. It's an "and" condition. One can be true and the other can be false, and it makes the whole statement false, just like you want it. Just because it makes one part true, it's not a conflict to make the other part false. If the active window is title3, then both parts are true, so the condition ev...

Re: click a button & fill text in all input fields on next page

Is there any visual indication at all when it's ready? When you do it manually, you just have to keep trying until it works? What is the result when you click it and it's not ready? Any change at that point or just no change to the page at all?

Re: Gdip and ImageSearch can't see specific application window

Try using an aero theme. ImageSearch can't see partially transparent windows without DWM enabled, which it is when you have an aero theme selected.

Re: New Homepage - Scheduled Next Friday (Feb. 3, 2017)

And to emphasize how much I think the word "awesome" doesn't belong... I think it's a very casual word. I use it on occasion, but it doesn't fit here. People already (incorrectly) question AutoHotkey as a serious or "real" language. We might as well put a cartoon of a teen with his cap on backwards,...

The awesome beginner-friendly automation scripting language for Windows. I know this will seem minor to some, but punctuation is important. ("Grandma enjoys cooking her family and animals.") The comma was removed from where it didn't belong after "beginner-friendly", but it still needs one inserted...
