Re: Recording Commands?

Several years ago I used one called AutoHotKey, which seemed fairly accessible.

Sorry  I don't know the URL but I'm sure a trip through google land will give 
you results.

  Thank you,
  So you don't know of an accessible Macro that just sends the simple key 
combinations to the computer?
  I'd think that a Macro that just sends key combinations to the computer would 
be simpler than programming for one specific application.
  JFW doesn't have a Macro feature somewhere? I'd think this would be a very 
useful thing, if people knew how to use it.
  I find myself doing all kinds of repetitive tasks that I would love a simple 
Macro to do and all using simple reproducible key commands.
  I'll check download.com, but I really have no idea what I'm looking for.
  Thanks,

  Brandon: That looks like a micro you are looking for. However, macros only 
work in certain programs. You can try OCR solutions like openbook. This program 
has a print utility that sends the eselected text to openbook and performs OCR 
on it. it also once it finishes it let you save the document as .DOC. I don't 
know if this helps or not, but it sure helps me quite a it. Thanks to the fact 
that all of my PDF's are supposed "protected" format... Apperently, they 
protected against the mouse... Not against control shift commands and openbook.

  Subject: Recording Commands?


  Hello,
  I'm wondering if there are any programs that I can get that will record a 
group of commands that I press then all I need to do to execute those commands 
after they're recorded is press a button.
  For example:
  I'm converting my textbook from PDF documents to Documents by:
  down arrow to chapter 20 in my documents,
  hit enter,
  down arrow (sais I'd like to read the document left to right top to bottom)
  enter,
  wait 10 seconds,
  hit ctrl A,
  hit ctrl C,
  alt tab twice (to get to a blank document)
  hit ctrl V,
  hit down arrow then left arrow once,
  hit back space 4 times,
  hit ctrl shift up arrow,
  hit ctrl C,
  hit ctrl S,
  hit ctrl V,
  hit ctrl N,
  hit alt tab,
  hit alt F4,
  hit alt tab,
  and down arrow to chapter 21 and repeat.

  This is very repetitive and I would love to find a way that it will max take 
15 seconds and I just need to hit a button every 15 seconds for the process to 
begin again.
  Please, any ideas will be greatly welcome!
  Thank you,

  Brandon Keith (Biggs)
