4. Type a few letters and have them replaced with the long strings of text (Hotstrings) @26:29
5. Use a spell checker that will run on every Windows program @34:49
6. Remap keys /key combinations @43:29
7. Send a Mouse Click to specified coordinates @47:12

Hi Mr. Glines,

I wrote recently this post asking for help, but seemed not to be easy to answer:

https://www.autohotkey.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=79450

Is in this tutorial enough content to solve my issue? I'm a bit lack of time these days (I'm writing my phD, takes a lot!), so I need to ask. Thank you kindly!

Hi Joe,

although my question was answered and a more complex script was given, I will check this video to understand better the way AHK works.

Thank you very much!
