Sure, there are programs that purport to let you automate repetitive tasks on your PC. But most of these are extremely limited in scope, and soon you find yourself frustrated with the limitations. Today's discount software promotion, though, takes automation to the next level, offering practical advantages in a package that's powerful and flexible. It's called Quick Macros!

Quick Macros lets you automate tasks on your PC, including program launches, file management, text processing, and custom dialogs. With Quick Macros, you'll enjoy a level of flexibility and customization never before offered by a program of this type - record keystrokes and mouse actions, trigger actions through hotkeys, mouse movement, a scheduler, toolbars, or menus. You can even use Quick Macros to create programs using its API, running them as executable files from within the program, or distributing them to run on computers without Quick Macros.

Tired of performing repetitive administrative processes? Quick Macros can help you with those, as well. Install software, monitor files and processes, backup files, even shutdown, restart, or sleep your computer, automatically. There's even support for conditional execution using variables, functions, classes, error handling and more!

ron r This is not "just" another "macro" tool, this is the type of application where you start to ask: "What can't it do..."

It's in a league of it's own...

Add to this the user-friendly "fine print" and the option to make this application portable, you end up with a "MUST HAVE"
And now at a discount.... if ever a "get this one!" should slap you in the face...THIS should be it...

bvssunnydale Hi, for me the big disadvantages of all these programs is lack of training - is this addressed at all or is an intermediate/advanced level of macro programming assumed. Thanks very much.

Gintaras Didzgalvis Simple tasks can be recorded. Also there are dialogs to create code.
For other tasks - intermediate/advanced level of macro programming assumed.

Amit What code will work for - insert key to Send keys to open tab in - opera when current active window is opera browser and duplicate tab when browser is firefox, while it shoulddo its normal function in all other windows. I saw that in all other windows, the key went errorful to be losing its home key functionality, even if it worked this way somehow in opera and firefox.

Also one thing is that have made macros and autotexts but want to erase all - this below texts from all autotextlists, which are inputted in all autotextlists with sample items. is there an easier way to maybe findandreplace all such text in all many made autotext lists -


sim :'"simple text" ;;inserts simple text when you type sim and postfix (Ctrl, space, comma, Enter...)
simp :"paste text" ;;same as above, but uses clipboard instead of keys. If 'Hybrid paste' checked in Options, uses keys for short text, clipboard for long or multiline text.

dt :str s.timeformat("{DD} {T}"); key (s) ;;current date and time. To add the code, you can use the Text dialog from the floating toolbar.
inpn :if(inp(_i "a number")) key F"the number is {_i}" ;;manual text input

If there are several matching items, shows a popup list. Select an item with mouse, Enter, Tab or a number key.
PL :'"list item 1"
PL :'"list item 2" ;;Label

mr User Hi, can you please explain if I can use this as a replacement for Phraseexpress?
I really really enjoy Phraseexpress, but it is quite pricey, and needs constant upgrades that adds to the price. I would buy it immediately if it fit my needs.
I use it mainly as a snippet manager, but also for som macros.
Can quick macros do the following:
1) import from Phraseexpress
2) easily create a way to substitute a keyword with a phrase
3) store phrases or complete sentences WITH formatting (rtf or html), like where I have a keyword sig1, that inserts my signature including formatting and an image.
4) replace autohotkey, so I can change right arrow key to be enter key instead.
5) save the files on dropbox for portability.

Stew Cam I am a registered user of Quick Macros, having previously used a number of more expensive macro utilities. As ron r states above, this is actually much more than a macro program. It provides an amazing range of functionality to control almost every aspect of your PC. The developer seems to be a one-man band, but the guy is a machine! At full price it is a bargain, at 50% off it is a total no-brainer. I saw this offer in my email and actually came here just to post my recommendation - that's how good it is!

umike I tried to scrape a site with QM but it seems that the ajax javascript in that site is never executed. This caused many data of the site to be missing.
Can you give me an example how to scrape a site with javascript so that I can test QM?

Gintaras Didzgalvis About Quick Macros (QM) and PhraseExpress (PE).
Cannot import from PE.
Can substitute a keyword with a phrase (autotext). It is easy.
Can paste HTML format, but will need to find and import function PasteHtml from the forum.
Remap keyboard - yes.
QM does not interact with Dropbox directly.

Gintaras Didzgalvis IntGetFile simply downloads the web page. To execute javascript, use HtmlDoc class. Example:
HtmlDoc d.SetOptions(2)
str s=d.GetText

Gintaras Didzgalvis >What code will work for...
Will need two macros - Macro1 for Opera and Macro2 for Firefox. In Properties dialog of Macro1, select Opera in the Programs combo box. In Properties of Macro2 select Firefox.

>Also one thing is that have made macros and autotexts but want to erase all...
Sorry, I don't understand the question.

Kelly Hamblin I would definitely not say I am at an "intermediate/advanced level of macro programming". However, this is very tempting. Let me ask this: Does it come with a good manual? If so, is the manual downloadable or only available online?
Sep 24 at 6:13am Copy Link
Gintaras Didzgalvis I cannot say how good is the manual, but everything about Quick Macros is there. There are several formats: local Help file, online, downloadable PDF file, and function help+tips in the editor window.

roger bullers I echo Ron and Stew's comments, bought it last year on offer and is worth far more than $60 let alone $30. A great program, it is pure gold.

Amit Thanks first thing works. But want to also know if is there is any of functionality or independent software to find which all hotkeys are used up in qm.

Greg Istered How do updates and upgrades to newer major versions from a pricing perspective?
Sep 25 at 1:04am Copy Link
Bo User This is a must buy for anyone considering automating their pc. Here are the big reasons:

1. It's ultra powerful. If you can describe it, you can probably automate it. Simple tasks can simply be recorded with a built-in recorder. Complex tasks require programming.

2. There is abundant documentation with examples.

3. Gintaras, the owner, not only responds quickly to your emails, but often supplies tested and working code for you for free. He's a straightshooter who will tell you if something can work or not.

4. I've looked at over 20 automation programs - ranging from $30 to $450. Quickmacros beats them all with more power, more speed, more options, more stability, and a man who stands behind his product (perhaps all day long because he answers so fast)

5. In a world filled with greedy companies selling you programs with one year worth of upgrades only, Quickmacros gives you updates for life.

6. In my first 3 months alone, I created dozens of autotext to spit out long phrases, send email, scrape urls from websites, fix poor user interfaces in other programs (eg 10 clicks to do a job becomes 1 click), run batch jobs, add keywords to websites in a web design program that had no such feature, etc. A few months later, I wrote entire programs to automate web browsing and research.

Buy it. You will not regret it. I'm not paid a single dollar to write this.

You're my boy, Gintaras !!!

David How is this different from ATNSOFT's key manager? That records macros too and can assign all sorts of actions (including mouse clicks) to different key combinations.
Sep 25 at 6:22am Copy Link
Gintaras Didzgalvis The programs have many similar and many different features, need to try both.

Kelly Hamblin Thanks for all the posts and answers. I just grabbed the deal. :)
