I'm trying to create a macro to type a txt into my onenote program. I've gotten the ctrl-1 and ctrl-3 but I'm then trying to yellow highlight which is ctrl-shift-H then the text .. but all the macro does is put the txt with an H before it. So here is the macro. I need the ctrl-shift-h after the ctrl 3 but it doesnt work. Help appreciated.
You didn't upload the macro, so we can't see where it's failing.
Please see this if you haven't already.
Okay – I fiddled with this critter a bit and got it working on my machine.
Give it a try and let me know if it works for you.
All i'm looking to do is when i press "a2n" that the following be typed in onenote:
Ctr-1 Ctrl 3 [AL TO JENNIFER] Assigned %ICUDateTime%MM/dd/yyyy @ hh:mm% -
I can get all the above done except have the AL TO JENNIFER highlighted in yellow.
I thought I demonstrated how to do that...
What are you using Ctrl-1 and Ctrl-3 for? They're meaningless in my stock OneNote installation.
In any case – here's a macro that doesn't include your control-key-presses but does the rest.
Strong Hint – Don't use Type a Keystroke actions when it's possible to use a Select or Show a Menu Item action instead. The latter is safer and more robust for a number of reasons.
