Duplicate Text

Post by bpod27 » Fri Mar 24, 2017 2:21 pm

Sometimes when I run macros with text, it enters the text multiple times. Most often it enters the text twice but sometimes thrice. Sometimes it enters even more than three duplicates of the text expansion.

I have been able to mitigate the affects by adding wait times, <wx>(#), to the end of my macros, and the beginning of lines of text. This has become common practice for me because this is such a common issue in Perfect Keyboard.

Some of my macros are email templates, and I use line breaks in my Macro Text. It makes no difference if I use line breaks or the <enter> command while writing the Macro Text.

I'm running Windows 10 Pro, x64, though this was also a common problem in Windows 7 Pro, x64. Multiple other users in our organization have the same issue.

This issue happens more in web based applications, though it also happens in the Office Suite- including Outlook and OneNote.

I cannot find any forum topics addressing this issue, so I'd like to report this bug.
