Re: How to Change the Font of Hotstring Text

Wow, there really is no way? For example, there is no way for me to insert the arrow symbol, 🡆 into all programs in Windows (not just Microsoft Office)? I've created a hotstring to insert 🡆 into programs but it doesn't work for Microsoft Office. That really stinks. Hallo, unfortunately, there is no ...

Re: Complete newbie question is it possible to change font and font size in MSword.

@BoBo

You mentioned Fiverr in your response. I was intending to use Fiverr to help program something for me in AutoHotkey. (I don't have the time to do it myself.) Is it a bad place to hire some quick programming help? If so, can you recommend some alternatives?

Thanks.

Re: AHK-Studio.exe produces an error.

*In case people don't remember, I have to use AHK-Studio.exe to use AHK-Studio because my program launcher (KeyPirinha) only recognizes EXE files. How about you use autohotkey.exe to run your script (use the script name as a command line parameter)? Autohotkey.exe AHKStudio.ahk Hi, Greg, I didn't n...

Easy Question - How to Save Words

Hi, just need some quick help you, guys. I make a lot of typos. I would like to add these typos to my AutoHotkey autocorrection script. Right now, I waste a lot of time by adding each typo one at a time to my script. In other words, every time I misspell a word, I press the left arrow key a couple o...

Re: Ditto- How to Paste Plain Texts Topic is solved

Great answer. Sorry for the late reply but I've been trying to fix my computer after I got the BSOD for the past 2 weeks. I wish there was a way that computers can just reinstall everything with a wave of a hand. It takes me like 2-3 weeks to tweak my computer back to normal after I wipe the drive a...

Re: AutoHotkey and RAM Disks

Can you share those 8,000 auto corrections? My spelling is awful. I don't see a problem storing ahk scripts there but I'm also not sure you would see any benefit since the script lives "in memory" once loaded. I can share them, no problem. The only problem is that they are currently in PhraseExpres...

AutoHotkey and RAM Disks

I just got into creating a RAM Disk for my computer and I really like it. I want to keep it simple to a few programs that would benefit the most from it. For example, all PDF editors are resource-heavy and from some reason, they take an awful long time to load and even move around pages for PDF file...

Ditto- How to Paste Plain Texts Topic is solved

I frequently use the Number Pads to paste a series of copies I've made. I'm assuming most of you do that too. For example, I will see a copy of related paragraphs I want to read later. I will select a paragraph, press copy+c. Then, when I see another paragraph, I select it and press copy+c. When I h...

AutoHotkey vs PhraseExpress - Get Rid of It?

I use both PhraseExpress and AutoHotkey. And, I was thinking about just getting rid of PhraseExpress since they are constantly conflicting with each other. The GUI doesn't look as pretty but I can live with it and use AutoHotkey from now on to AutoCorrect everything. However, I have one question. Wh...

So, you make AHK programs for work! I didn’t realize you could do that. Good luck! For me, I realize that I'm going to stop learning AHK intensively. It's so much work and effort to figure out the smallest things. If I was at school and I could take courses, I would definitely learn but learning her...

Re: AHK Studio

Maestrith, I finally figured out why it wouldn’t compile. I was using Alt-M as a hotkey for something else so that interfered with the compile process for ahk-studio. (I think there is an authokey script floating around that suggests using Alt+M as a hotkey to insert mathematical symbols.) Strangely...
