Play a keystroke macro
A keystroke macro is a sequence of keystrokes or key combinations. Just specify once which keys should be pressed, and Comfort Keys Pro will duly repeat these keystrokes as many times as needed.
You can use the actions of this type to:
|•||Create keyboard shortcuts practically for any actions. One keyboard shortcut can replace the need to press several keys.|
|•||Enter your username and password.|
|•||Quickly print a predefined number of document copies.|
|•||And much more. If you frequently do the same routine operation, think about automating it. Keep in mind that practically any action can be done without using the mouse.|
To start recording a macro, click the Record button.
To stop recording the macro, press the Pause key, or click the Record icon in the system tray.
When you are recording a macro, all your keyboard actions are saved to a table with the following fields:
|•||Delay before the next action.|
|•||Event type – whether the key is pressed down or released.|
|•||The sign that the key is an extended one.|
You can edit a previously recoded macro, or create a new macro without recording it. To do it, click the Edit button.
Having recorded a macro, you can specify advanced parameters defining how it will be played:
|•||The number of repetitions.|
|•||The name of the process that should be activated before starting the macro. For example, you can make the window of Windows Media Player active before the macro is played. If Windows Media Player is not running at the moment, the macro will not be played.|
You can stop playing the macro anytime. Just press the Pause or Esc key, or click the Playback icon in the system tray.
