I would like to propose “Paste via Clipboard” property for Type Into activity.
There are various known issues in Type Into activities, such as …
when typing special characters,
when used in Japanese OS,
when used in Citrix environment,
Using “Type Into” with Quickbooks application, randomly in the process, characters will be missing. I am transferring strings from an Excel spreadsheet into Quickbooks. For example a name will go from “Mike Smith” to “Mke Smith”. I have slowed the DelayBetweenKeys down to 150ms, but that has not helped.
As a workaround for these issues, “clipboard + send Ctrl-V” is well-known, and frequently used. Since it seems to be implemented in many workflows, very often, why don’t we support this combo command as one mode of Type Into activities, and let users enable this mode from property?
Hiroaki…let me check if I understand.
You want to enable a special mode of working for the
type into activity:
copy the text property to clipboard
instead of typing each character.
Thanks for your clarification. Correct. That is what I want to have.
Oh, that feature would be really nice to have! For long strings it’s much faster to paste, than do a proper typing. Not all apps support “Send Window Messages” sadly.
@cubx, and other people interested about this.
You can use the “Send Hotkey” activity for this.
Just ensure you have the “SpecialKey” modifier unchecked.
i dont think you understood the requirement, everyone know how to paste something that is already in the clipboard, the thing here is pasting something out of a like string variable…
Due to I am new User its not allow me to add multiple Images, So i have split my answer as step by step.
Open a ’
Input Dialog ’ to get input text from user and copy the text to clipboard using ’ Copy to Clipboard ':
