...because where else would I go? :)
1. I am using AHK only for text expansion (hotstrings) right now. Is there a way to add hotstrings to the automatically executed script and have them picked up without manually clicking "Reload" in the tray icon? It would be perfect if AHK were monitoring the script file for changes, I suppose.
[Edit] Never mind, I've found the Edit and Reload commands. Now if only I could tell the Edit command to open the script in TextPad instead of Notepad...
2. Is there a way to trigger a hotstring (or another similar feature) using selected text, rather than typing? E.g. when I encounter a term in a document I am translating, I would like to select the text and have it replaced with a translation, defined in AHK script. (For example, with hotstrings I have to type "Control Panel" to get the translation. I would like to select "Control Panel" instead, press a key and have the translation pasted in.)
