Special Keys

Postby fpista » Sat May 05, 2012 10:48 pm

I would like to see an functionality to insert special key like tab, enter arrow page up dow etc... like in the Fast Paste and Auto Fill Form program. This is a kind of macro functionality, which helps to work with forms.

Hi fpista, I've actually thought about something like this before. Can you provide some example scenarios that you might use this for?

I could see it being used as a rudimentary webpage form filler. For example, you could have a clip that contained "Vince{3DC!Tab}Valenti{3DC!Tab}Address" and when you AutoPaste this into an application (web browser?), it would essentially fill in a form for you, tabbing between elements.

I could also see applications for this in terminal programs. You could basically have macros that could use arrow keys, control codes, etc.

How do you envision this feature actually working? Would it only work for AutoPaste operations?

Thanks for the feedback!
