Autohotkey macros 22. November 2012 Marius-Gheorghe tools (0) One of the nicest and most underused features of Autohotkey is the keyboard macros. Basically the ability to define text "shortcuts" that will be expanded in a command/text etc. Here is a example i use everyday : ::wu:: clipboard = ( svn update c:\work\trunk\ ) send ^v return } I'm defining the "wu" macro which will be expanded to "svn update c:\work\trunk" (to expand type the macro name and press TAB). I'm using this macro to run the svn update command on my "work" project (funny side note...i noticed that updating a svn repo from CLI is at least 3-4 times faster compared to using TortoiseSVN. The power of CLI, huh ?).
