I find that Macro Express makes creating hot keys simple.

I have a license for Macro Express, and used it a bit at work.  It seems a good program, but often seemed too heavy-duty, somehow.  There's clearly a lot of complexity, which can be intimidating, even if you don't intend to use much of it.  Nudone's first post in this thread (the OP was about ATNSOFT) seemed to call for a lighter-weight and perhaps more focussed application.  Also, Macro Express is payware - I'm not saying it isn't worth the price, I think it is, but free is a particularly good price.

For free, there's still Anthony Mathews' Macro Maker, but I think it can only store its macros in the Registry.  Also, the author notes that there's a problem setting system hooks to create macro recordings under Vista, just as there is with HotKeyz, so it looks like Microsoft's security model has well and truly screwed up convenience and productivity.

i've read through your ME review, Chris. sorry i missed it before. thanks. i'll check ME out later.

As rjbull points out, it's not for everyone -- what is? I've tried others and happen to prefer ME but your proclivities may lie elsewhere.

Just about every key on my keyboard has multiple 'soft' macros tied to it. That doesn't help with simultaneous-multi-key gaming action (so far, I haven't found the need for such in Noughts and Crosses.)

okay, still not tried Macro Express - i think i'm beginning to drown under the number of hotkeys and macros available...

a couple of days ago i read about WordStar: and how it had a clever method of navigating around documents. after a few attempts to find a decent WordStar key emulator i found this at lifehacker:

i've not used it for long but it instantly feels better than using the standard arror/cursor keys, etc. and it has plenty of scope for modification (as it's an AHK script). maybe even just including the standard WordStar hotkeys would be a nice place to start - assuming it's better to do things one handed rather than two handed (not sure myself).

;D ;D
I was just about destroyed when WordStar went under.
A huge number of people still have WS keys burnt into the retina of the mind's eye.

Personally, I think it's time you stopped faffing about with mice and keys and began to master mind control.  :Thmbsup:

That's an excellent idea but for the moment i could try a modification of the Remote Wrangler, it's what wireless keyboards (and mice) were made for...
