Hold down key macro
Submitted by Anonymous on Wednesday, 25 August, 2004 - 09:22
I want to write a macro that allows me to instruct a specific key to be held down for set period of time. For instance, i need to be able to instruct that the spacebar be held down for x seconds.

Is this possible and how do i go about it?

Thanks in advance.

In other words, do you want the macro to insert one or more space characters into your text buffer?

Or are asking for something else?

Can you provide an example (use case) of what you are trying to accomplish? That may help to answer your question.
