We have all been faced with repetitive tasks before, whether you
are filling in web forms over and over again, replying to emails
with boilerplate replies day after day, or launching frequently
used programs, documents and web pages. It's an irritation, not
to mention a waste of your valuable time.
MultiMacro is a multi-purpose macro tool that can save
you from the burden having to perform repetitive tasks yourself.
MultiMacro can perform a variety of different tasks, it can
fill in web forms or dialog boxes, launch multiple programs (documents
or web pages), paste frequently used text (for example standard
email replies), record and playback keystrokes or mouse
movement & clicks and much more, the benefits are endless. Or use
the Quick Macro to recording and playback mouse and keystrokes
with minimal fuss.
MultiMacro has a clean and easy to use interface so you will be
able to jump right in with minimal hassle.
The customizable toolbar allows you to put the commands you most
frequently use just a click away. A preview bar offers quick
previewing and editing of macros.
A macro wizard will help you get started straight away - creating
macros is both quick and simple. Once you have created several macros,
you will want to keep them organized. This can be done by creating
sub-folders, then drag and drop macros in-between folders. MultiMacro's
help is context sensitive HTML help, so just click on the HELP button
in any of the dialog boxes what you want more information about.
For power-users, an established scripting
language (VBScript) permits maximum control in creating advanced
There's no need to remember a host of cryptic hot key
combinations to access each macro, you only need to remember
just one - the QuickList hot key.
Macros are activated through an innovative QuickList.
The QuickList avoids clutter by showing you macros that are
relevant to the program you are currently working in.
Jump to the macro that you want to start by typing in the alias
for the macro. The QuickList supports alias auto-complete so
key presses are kept to a minimum.
With the QuickList, you have the advantage of assigning
meaningful names to macros, instead of cryptic key presses. You
also avoid hogging all hot keys that other programs may use.
Paste Macro: pastes text or images into applications you are
currently working in, use the built in text editor to format the text.
Or have the macro paste the contents of a text file instead.
Keystrokes Macro: simulates keystrokes as if you were typing
at the keyboard. Regular text and non-text key presses such as
the arrow and function keys can all be simulated. The keystrokes
editor allows you to edit and record the keystrokes at any
Launch Macro: launches a list of programs, folders,
documents or Internet resources such as a web pages.
Recorder Macro: records keystrokes, mouse movements and
mouse clicks. The recorded events can be played back in real
time, or you can adjust the playback speed.
Scripts: provide maximum control over the execution of
the macro using an already well establish scripting language;
VBScript. This is a powerful macro that can be used to control
other programs including Windows Operating System itself.
As well as using MultiMacro's easy to use interface to create
macros, MultiMacro also caters for the power-user.
For the power-user, MultiMacro supports scripting. Using VBScript
your macro reaches beyond MultiMacro's user interface, for example
you can control not only MultiMacro but other programs too
(that support automation) such as Microsoft Office applications,
Internet Explorer and the desktop itself.
You can also interact or start MultiMacro using a plain
text script file, similar to how you would use a batch (.bat)
MultiMacro provides a host of services though its own
object model, it includes support for the mouse, keyboard
and window management. Or you can use the object model of another
What is VBScript?
VBScript is a scripting language that's easy to use and
popular. This means the chances are that you may be already
familiar with it, if not it's easy to learn. And, once you
learn VBScript, you are on your way to programming with the
whole family of Visual Basic languages.
