How do I remap key so that when I press 2 or 3 it actually types 2q or 3q with a 50ms delay between the number and the letter?

This doesn't work:

send 2
sleep, 30
send q

Is this specific to autohotkey or is it a batch file or something? Also, just wondering, what are you planning on doing with this? Sounds evil, but funny. – Frank Jul 22 '13 at 22:50

Remapping a key to send itself requires you to use the $ modifier.

    SendInput, 2
    Sleep 30
    SendInput, q
