    Hello

    Im using macro express to "select all" and then "copy to clipboard"

    <CONTROL>a
    <CONTROL>x

    When I do this nothing happens..

    Anyone know why?

    * I did search in Google - read like 30 threads and I still have no solution.

    Thanks

    From what kind of window are you doing the selecting? I think the command changes based on what window, i.e. chrome is different from IE is different than a standard windows window.

    I don't think ctrl + x is copy to clipboard. In Chrome it's "Cut". ME has a special command for copying something to clipboard that isn't part of windows. It's the "Clipboard Copy" command, which copies whatever text is selected into the clipboard. You can then paste it later using the "Clipboard Paste" command.

    If those commands are correct, then what is happening is that you haven't got the correct window focused (or any window). As a test, put a break in your script just before these commands and enter a temporary command "alt + d" and run the script and check to see if the URL bar gets highlighted. If not, you aren't focused on the right window.

    Macro Express has a good support forum here:
    http://pgmacros.invisionzone.com/

    I would join that forum and post questions that are really hard to solve.

    If you find me on skype (b.friendly1) I can help with your scripting as I've been doing ME for years.

    PS I wrote this post in pieces while researching so my answer "evolved" during the post. That's why it reads clunky.
