Keyboard Macro

Here is a video showing you how to get Eclipse to write into other programs such as Microsoft Word, an IM program, or your web browser. If you’re tired of regular keyboard slowing you down or you just want more practice on the machine, this could be the answer to your troubles!

Important notes before you watch the video:

  • You should create a new user before you start.
  • If you use this method, Eclipse will still create its own transcript of what you write, but it will also write into whatever program is open on top of Eclipse. If Eclipse is on top, it will only write into Eclipse.
  • You must be very careful what programs are on top! If your cursor is not in a text box when you are writing, crazy things might happen due to shortcut keys being activated.

As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Gifts of pies, cakes, and/or brownies are accepted.
