:idea: One of the Steves, I think Hobberstad and me (under several Id´s, sorry, used to be a guest + now use diff. aliases on several own sites, so it sort of happens, hopefully for a good cause) - have been mentioning interaction or combination of a handy program by the name of KeyText. There is a similar name for a diff. program meant for something else, btw. (hotkey explanation library), what me and Steve referred to, though, is the KeyText by mjmsoft for macros automating standard procedures like passw., texts, tasks etc.

What we both did not seem to mention yet is that ANY macro editing or creating program automatically needs a way for fastly switching let´s say between where u insert for example your macro (FTP config. for uploading, typical tools only allow 1, reentering for a diff. server, pain in the neck, or use macros to change before uploading) and the macro editor itself.

Sometimes u don´t just press the macro hotkey but only copy and paste PARTS of it into some data or text fields (forum sig.´s, another example, the more forums you are active in, the better it is to have your personal data in a macro). For only copying PARTS you must fastly switch between TWO crucial windows, both of which can cause disasters when 1 mistake happens.

Solution - guess what?

Actual Window Manager suite again in my case - just keep either sending the top window to bottom using the button for that added by this nifty tool til the right 1 appears on top (u dont always remember where it was, u find out fast this way, though), or keep 1 on top if there are only 2 involved till you want to go back to the other 1 which does not always work without a window manager.

For the same purpose you will also find a fast transparency setting with a mere button click EXTREMELY useful, so, Michael Tretyakov + Team, User added an image on your program and User added an image
