Introduction to Macros

2021-01-31

Version 0.3.6 introduces a new Premium feature: Macros.

The purpose of Macros is to help you do certain things faster. And of course, by using your favorite keyboard.

There are 10 Macros related to text introduced in this version.

  • Select all text
  • Delete all text
  • Move cursor to the beginning of the text field
  • Move cursor to the end of the text field
  • Change text in the text field to uppercase
  • Change text in the text field to lowercase
  • Capitalize first character in the text field
  • Capitalize first letter of each word in the text field
  • Copy text in the text field to Clipboard
  • Paste text in the Clipboard to the text field

Just like Snippets, Macros are triggered using Keyword. Each Macro has its default Keyword.

Important notes:

  1. Macros have higher priority than Snippets. If any of your Snippets uses one of the default Keyword of those Macros, the Snippet won’t expand, and the Macro will be triggerred instead.
  2. Keyword for Macro is not configurable at the moment. It will be possible in the near future.
  3. Undo is not yet supported. It will be available in the near future for certain Macros.
