I used a macro recorder for AutoHotkey in the past, but now I can't seem to find it at all.

Unfortunately John T's answer is only half of the solution. AutoScriptWriter is no more part of the newest AHK Installer. It is only part of the full old version of AHK, called by the somewhat misleading name "AutoHotkey Basic".

  • Go to the download page http://www.autohotkey.com/download/
  • Find "Installer for AutoHotkey Basic"
  • If you do not need UniCode, you can install this one, it includes AutoScriptWriter. However I recommend to use the new AHK, so this is not the solution.
  • Instead I recommend that you "download this zip file instead", at http://www.autohotkey.com/download/AutoHotkey.zip
  • In this ZIP there is a directory called AutoScriptWriter
  • Copy this complete directory somewhere, including the DLL.
  • You can run AutoScriptWriter.exe from within this directory.

Note that AutoScriptWriter does not create UniCode documents, so the Save button is useless now. However you can use the Clipboard to copy the text portions you want.

This solution works for me as of 2011-10-25

I'm working on a new Macro Recorder for AutoHotkey. It has many features, you can edit any part of the macro, test it and easily create Scripts with Hotkeys or Hotstrings. If anyone's looking for a Free Macro Utility, please check it out. Pulover's Macro Creator enter image description here
