Perfect Keyboard is an award-winning, time-saving utility running under the Windows operating systems. The program allows a user to create a file of frequently used phrases, paragraphs, e-mail addresses, macros, clipboard entries, scripts, etc. and use them in any application just by typing a short abbreviation (text shortcut) or pressing a hot-key (key shortcut). The Perfect Keyboard supports macro recording (keyboard and/or mouse events) so that user can simply record macros rather than program them. The Perfect Keyboard scripting language (300+ commands) allows one to insert time and date, activate a window, launch applications, manage files and directories, work with clipboard, download files, format text and more. Creating macros do not require any programming skills thanks to visual editing tools. New in this release:

  • Added support for French language (thanks Bruno!).
  • It is possible to remove unwanted clipboard formats from clipboard macros (and make them smaller).
  • Macro clipboard preview was improved.
  • New command <clp_replace_text> was added. The command allows to replace portion of the text in clipboard. The command supports wildcards and regular expressions.
  • It is newly possible to specify parameters for clipboard macros executed using <run> command. The parameters allow to replace text in the clipboard macro before the clipboard macro content is pasted in other application. Wildcards and regular expressions are supported.
  • Macro file save operation was improved so that the previous macro file is preserved (it is located next to the macro file and has .prev extension).
  • Text replace feature in the macro editor was improved by supporting wildcards and regular extensions. It is now possible to replace/remove also macro commands such as <wx>(431), <mm>(13,242), etc. that are produced during macro recording.
  • If macro does not have name assigned then macro description (if set) or macro text is shown instead in macro menus (menus that are open when user is about to pick one macro to run from multiple).
  • It is possible to use application global or system variable in the macro name.
  • Added an option to start the program "as administartor". Some programs (Firefox, for example) do not cooperate with Perfect Keyboard and Macro Toolworks if they are not started "as administrator".
  • Fixed a problem with searching for macro groups.
  • Macro recorder was fixed to record real-time information also in case mouse movements are not recorded.
  • Fixed the crashing of the program when macro trigger (text shortcut) was changed.
  • Fixed the problem that the program did not properly scale based on the DPI settings (user chages text size in Windows Display Settings).
  • The clipboard text history (system variables %_vClpText0%, %_vClpText1%, etc.) was fixed so that the history is only updated if the new clipboard content is text.
  • There was fixed a problem when additional unexpected characters where inserted (when macro inserted text through clipboard or when <clppastetext> or <clpput> commands were used).
  • Fixed a problem with entering some dead-key characters from international keyboards (US International, Portugese, etc.).
  • Other minor fixes an changes.
