A restart of Chrome, this morning, seems to have 'broken' my autohotkey scripts to expand text messages and automate repetitive button pressing sequences.

I edit Waze maps and take part in various zooniverse projects. For map editing, I had a bunch of phrases that I typed over and over. I created 4 character strings that expand to types stuff like: xttc expands to 'time to close.' All of that stopped working this morning. I use alt-A, to flicker between views on zooniverse.org's asteroid hunting task. All of those are now non-functional if chrome is the 'focus'.

Very frustrating! Many hours of work writing scripts are now worthless unless I can figure out which setting to change.

    If you could post some samples of the code it would be helpful for troubleshooting. – Sidola Oct 29 '14 at 13:25

  • It won't let me send even a short snip, says it is too long. – user384869 Oct 29 '14 at 13:41

  • I don't know why my 'id' changed when I logged in, nor why I can't give Sidola credit for helping me. – user384917 Oct 29 '14 at 15:48
