Hi Steve,

I have had some success with AutoIt:

It is free and pretty easy to grasp.

Subject: Scripting issues

Yves' e-mail about scripting has reminded me of something I need advice
about.

Until quite recently I was using the ancient FrameMaker 7 for Mac. Over many
years of working with it I had developed a series of custom toolbars and
macros for cutting the workload of book production, using QuickKeys, a Mac
macro utility.

FrameMaker for Mac has now gone, as has QuickKeys for that matter, and I am
now working with FrameMaker 12 in Parallels. This leaves me without some
important but pretty simple automation, for example inserting
'<CharStyleName><DefaultParaFormat>' and so on into index markers.

Can anyone recommend a Windows text macro tool that could fill this gap?

Please note that I am not talking about automating FrameMaker with either of
the (at least?) two powerful methods now available, I am only talking about
simple text manipulation and user interface short-cuts. QuickKeys could cut,
paste and inject text and invoke menu commands, which is all I'm after.

Any advice welcome.

Steve
