Scrivener (price ~ $30) does that easily and it exports to MS Word.

Even better, make the output database files (at user's option) public (at least to DC members).
Example, I'd love a database of
Excel regex snippets.
macros of various origins
ahk snippets (that work!)

I like that. Especially if it will handle scrollable window input.

While I'm on the idea bandwagon (and Lord knows I am full of it, er I mean ideas):

Have you considered posting this (the Fundraiser) as an Indiegogo campaign? The Perks could then be various # of hours (max) for a custom coded app?

It would probably be a good idea to lower expectations by calling it "prototyping".

Tons of people should be willing to pay $99 for 10 hours, $199 for 20 hours, $299 for 30 hours, & $399 for 40 hours. Imagine, they get a custom job for $9.99 per hour. It wouldn't take many to smash that thermometer. And perhaps fill your Dance Card for the rest of the year.  :)

Followup offer to those who are close to completion within their time. They can choose to accept a working prototype with some functions working and others merely displayed as dummy buttons, or you can offer them an upgrade to finish for a fixed fee (or at your option) even a small royalty.

This idea is scalable with various coders contributing code snippets in their areas of expertise.

This could ultimately be made into a generic app where people chose which modules they want. But that would be outside of the Indiegogo campaign and likely far in the future.

Let me know if you have any interest. I have done an Indiegogo campaign, so can help with the setup mechanics.

I was trying to think of some ways we might get some attention for the fundraiser..

What about having a random drawing for any donor/supportingmember to win some something special like a SMALL custom app designed to their specifications -- up to say 20-40 hours of dev time?  I'd be volunteering to do the coding.. Could be an Android app, Desktop App, Web App..  So folks would enter by submitting their idea -- and only those I thought I could do within 40 hours would qualify -- which will eliminate a fair amount of entries I'm sure.

Not sure it's worth the effort if most people don't have a (qualifying) idea they want coded.. In other words most potential donors may not be attracted to the idea, so maybe it's a stupid idea.

That is a brilliant idea!! I love it & would absolutely participate.

Does this help to clear things up?
Yes, perfectly clear. I had thought the profile was just a "container" for the hotkey & that the latter was the "action building block." I had it backward.

Thanks so much for clearing that up.

Thanks, guys. That worked.

I can set up simple 1 to 1 hotkeys, but trying to combine them escapes me.
Example: I set up Shift+Win+G to open Gmail & Shift+Win+A to open Amazon.com. Both work fine.
I tried Shift+Win+Z as a Combo to do both:
  1st I don't know whether the hotkey goes in Filename or Arguments column, so I tried both. Neither worked. OK, probably faulty commands then.
  2nd I don't know the syntax for hotkeys in Splat system, I tried {shift}{win}G & {win}G
  Every variation I try gets the error message: "not launched successfully. ErrorLevel: 2"

I am evidently on the wrong track, so will await enlightenment.
Thanks.

Hi Jody,
Very nice program.
1 problem: my help file has no data-- the topics are listed, but the icon in front of each topic is a question mark & nothing happens when I click. I have downloaded it twice.
version v1.1.0 - 2015-01-27; win7 x64.
