Have Prompt for user input open for x seconds

Hi! Hopefully an easy question: how do I keep a prompt open for just x amount of seconds, and if no input has been given it presses OK and continues.

Maybe I´m thinking to advanced, but tried with variables and seconds and calculations..

Thx! :slight_smile:

I think the solution might be easier than you think:

Make sure to disable "Timeout Aborts Macro".

For a variable, you could set this variable to your default before the prompt. If the user makes no changes, the macro will then proceed using this default value. And if the user does enter a new value in the prompt, then the default will be overwritten.

So you don't even need an IF / THEN after the prompt.


Perfect! I felt like I was overdoing it :slight_smile: Thanks!
