Also a form of auto-correct. The third hotkey definition adds a subtle new feature but is fundamentally the same as the second.
When I contacted Chris Mallett, the creator of free utility AutoHotkey, about writing this review, I received an interesting reply: 'Please feel free to write whatever you like about AutoHotkey, even if it isn't all positive. AutoHotkey is something of a power user tool, so it isn't for everyone.' AutoHotkey's user interface, such as it is. You'll spend most of your time in a text editor.Chris knows what he's talking about. Some types of software, no matter how useful, aren't for everyone. If you're looking for a GUI-based hot key assignment program with an intuitive interface and short learning curve, AutoHotkey will be more than you need.
Best you take Chris's advice and move on to a package like. Simply put, there is no user interface. There are no menus. AutoHotkey parses script files that you create using an internal command language and save with any text editor. These scripts are assigned to key combinations which can be activated by the user at any time.
The command language is easy to grasp and the syntax is straightforward; however, requiring the user to create scripts to use the software is a line in the sand many will not cross, no matter how the process is structured. The engine behind AutoHotkey is impressive. The software is miniscule, lightning fast, and stable. Then again, since it has no user interface of any kind, it doesn’t have to do much other than crunch scripts. It’s more of a development environment and coding language than an application. For example, the package can be used to create self-running EXE files that will execute macro scripts on systems that do not have AutoHotkey installed. This is essentially a compiler.
