Re: Simple problem but I have no idea how to fix this Topic is solved

If the hotkey has more than one line to execute, then you have to start with the commands on the next line.

Code: Select all

q::
Click, left, 171, 348, 1
sleep 100
Click, left, 735, 230, 2
Send {Ctrl down} {c} {Ctrl up}
return

Re: Having trouble getting my AHK script to auto click specific places Topic is solved

I just tried with my Bluestacks version (not sure if up-to-date). It doesn't need elevated rights and its WinTitle is just "Bluestacks". (you can check with the AHK Window Spy , for example, via right-click menu of script's icon in the taskbar area) You can send Clicks, but not necessary here, I thi...

Re: Having trouble getting my AHK script to auto click specific places Topic is solved

I think Bluestacks runs with elevated rights. Try to run the script as admin. But a bigger problem is the wrong syntax you are using: IfWinActive and IfWinNotExist are each one single word - without space after If ... https://autohotkey.com/docs/commands/WinExist.htm https://autohotkey.com/docs/comm...

Re: open xy.ahk in standard editor app ? Topic is solved

Do you want to run the script while you edits the script? What do you mean by "standard editor"? (isn't notepad one standard editor?) He wanted it to open in the standard editor of his system. Of course, you can define notepad as the standard editor, but the system verb edit will always choose the ...

Re: Transform Unicode, invalid parameter

I am using version v1.1.30.01 of AutoHotkey.

Unicode [, String]: (This command is not available in Unicode versions of AutoHotkey.) Retr...

Re: some hotkeys have suddenly stopped working

Test if it works when you run your AHK script as admin. My impression (which might be wrong, though) is that more and more of Win10 apps/programs are running with elevated rights (but not Notepad). If you haven't changed your AHK version, obviously something on your system must have changed... The m...

Start with the beginner's tutorial and don't just read, but work through the examples: https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/Tutorial.htm
Then, the whole "Usage and Syntax" section of the docs gives an insight into many basic concepts: https://www.autohotkey.com/docs/AutoHotkey.htm (left side, at the top)

If you run Photoshop as admin, you will have to run AHK also as admin.

Re: need help on this script

Well, what goes {down} should go {up} again... don't you think?
(Keeping keys pressed will lead to unwanted effects...)

Btw, this key combo seems to move tabs, not to switch between them. Try it without the shift, if you want to just switch tabs.

Anybody knows if it's possible to have the {whatever you type here} included in the sentence it will put out?
Just use the Text option for hotstrings to keep the { }: (minimum AHK version 1.1.27)
