« on: May 13, 2018, 05:31 AM »
Hello all,

Are you really sure the string "xap" will be easier to recall than a hotkey like Pause or Control+Space?

Anyway, I don't think FARR has an option to open through a hotstring. But you can make a hotstring script with AutoHotkey.

:*:xap:: {Pause}

For more details see this help page https://autohotkey.c.../docs/Hotstrings.htm

One trick to learn a new single key hotkey is to tape a small piece of paper to it on the keyboard so you'll recall it at a glance until you have it in muscle memory.

Hello there,

thank you for your reply.

I do abhor these long sequences CTRL SHIFT ALT  + ABC etc

I never can remember them.


Every application wants to use them
So i was trying to make my own memorable ones with hotstrings

Please M, can you give us some wings to fly, so i can use FARR, a bit more

Can you add the hotstrings functionality if you can in future

i have so many folders to rememeber :D
