And who says size doesn't matter, both of these seem to work OK so now its just a matter of personal preference, I would think. Checker has brought more great software into the light, thanks to him and the developer. :)

TyperTask does not support Unicode.

I've had a bit better luck with QuickTextPaste on Win10x64 by using commands other than those that use the "Win" key in combinations. It only sometimes triggers properly. Much better to use CTRL+ALT, CTRL+SHIFT, etc.

What is the template to add commands to the menu list? Whatever i try it doesn't work.

Anyone knows about other cmd replacement that allows you to save commands?

JPsoft 4DOS/4NT (currently renamed to Take Command) allows you to set up persistent "alias", just check the documentation...

Been looking for a desktop program like this. It uses virtually the same interface as e.ggtimer.com, which I've been using for while.

@ smaragdus: Thanks ... and updated ;)

Easy to use and works good - just drag and drop over the window or dialog box. Seems more reliable and lite weight compared to similar apps.
