shift tab in text mode

22 Feb 2018, 17:45

Hi

I've come from a few other text replacement programs, but am looking to now focus on ahk, as its waay better.

In the past ive done text replacement on an web page and used the keyboard shotcuts to navigate to other text boxes to type some text there, eg


::q1::
(
Option:
Blah`t`t`tSecond option`t`t`t`t
)
return

now this works and is fine.

I'm having difficulty with finding the correct shift tab combination.

+{Tab}
+`t
{Shift}{Tab}
{Shift Tab}

As you can see im swinging for the roof at the end here,.
All the doco I've read handles shit alt tabs or other combinations, but not the one i want.

I could look into searching for and jumping to the actual input tag itself, but thats another lwevel of reading ill need to do ( not that im unwilling )
Just seems that this should be simpler than I'm currently making it appear...

Any pointers?

thanks

Hi Boiler,

That just pasted literally within the ( ... ) parentheses wrappers.
Id tried that before too.

I remove the parenthesis and its started working .

Question now is, should i explicitly use , eg send{raw} when trying that from within the parenthisis?

Thanks

Oh, yeah, I was not thinking about its use within parentheses. I don't believe you can, so you would have to put it in a continuous line and use `n for line breaks.
