Macro hot key problem


This is a change to macro behavior from 12 Aug 2014 - V10.20
New feature: Hot key and macro clips can now be used to open web sites, files or folders, start programs or start emails to a given address. All you have to do is save a file path, web site or email address as a hot key or macro clip and Spartan will treat it as if you had clicked the Net, Eml, Open or Run button for it.

If you want a hot key or macro to paste the text of such a clip, just add a space at the end. For Example...

The macro clip... "m8software.com" will open the M8 website
The macro clip... "m8software.com " will paste the text "m8software.com "
The macro clip..."john@m8software.com" will start an email to john@m8software.com
The macroclip..."john@m8software.com " will paste the text "john@m8software.com"

Note.... This feature has been replaced by dedicated Shortcut clips at V10.40.
