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...

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.

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.

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.
