Keystroke Macro

This is the Macro display, formatted for easy reading. Regular characters generate a Keystroke Down / Keystroke Up sequence (which emulates the keyboard action). Note that with the Caps Lock key off, Upper Case characters generate the Shift-Down / Keystroke Down / Keystroke Up / Shift-Up sequence to generate the appropriate keystroke. This is also necessary for certain punctuation characters. Reserved words (in [] Brackets) generate the appropriate Up / Down keystroke.

Note: Macros that use reserved words in brackets must be structured to match the way keystrokes would actually be typed and interpreted by the system. For example, a Ctrl-C type combination needs the Control key in the down (pressed) position during the up/down c character, so this common keystroke combination would be built as [Ctrl-Down]c[Ctrl-Up]. Note lower case characters should be used, as a [Ctrl-Down]C[Ctrl-Up] sequence would expand to be [Ctrl-Down][Shift-Down]c[Shift-Up][Ctrl-Up] and this adds keystrokes that may change the way the macro is interpreted.

Note: The Windows Key and Application Key can be generated as a standalone key with a Down/Up macro of [Win-Down][Win-Up] or [App-Down][App-Up]. For macros such as go to the Desktop, the macro would be [Win-Down]d[Win-Up].

Character Count

The Character Count displays how many characters are used in the Macro. There is a maximum of 128 characters per Macro in Joystick-To-Mouse.
