I did find a work-around for this issue, though it would be nice to do it with MMM instead of a third party program. The clipboard I use is called Clipjump. It requires the ctrl key to be held down and v pressed once to move across various clips on an extended clipboard, then the release of the ctrl button pastes the data. Essentially, a smarter clipboard. But because this app does one time presses, it cannot sift through various clips of data currently in the smart clipboard app. I have a solution using a third party on screen keyboard, so it's not too bad. I am interested in purchasing a pro version if the functionality suits my needs for automation for my current work. The complex functions could really help cut down on the repetitive nature of data entry, so I am willing to invest more time in this app. If the price allows of-course
The current version of MMM does not do multiple singular held key presses as you use case required reads below. There are some different ways to interact with the clipboard in Mini Mouse Macro.
Data can be written to the Windows Clipboard by using the 'COPY TO CLIPBOARD' action. This example copies the text 'Example text' to the clipboard: 1 | RUN ACTION | | | | COPY TO CLIPBOARD | Example Text of course data can be copied to the clipboard by selecting the data in Windows and doing a copy (ctrl+c) 2 | 2203 | 322 | 1234 | Keypress Ctrl+ | c
Data can be taken (pasted) from the Windows Clipboard by using the 'PASTE FROM CLIPBOARD' action. This example pastes the contents of the clipboard to where ever the focus is: 3 | RUN ACTION | | | | PASTE FROM CLIPBOARD again, data can be pasted from the clipboard using a Windows paste (ctrl+v) 4 | 2205 | 304 | 1177 | Keypress Ctrl+ | v
Mini Mouse Macro also stores the contents of the current Windows Clipboard to an internal variable; %CLIPBOARD%. This examples pastes the contents of the keyboard to the coord X and Y: 5 | 2292 | 361 | 1000 | Keypress %CLIPBOARD%
