We had a hold mouse button command for more than 10 years but removed it because it’s such a dangerous command.
I find it a very useful command for use in combination with my ergonomic mouse. For this command it is really important to have a name that will make it virtually impossible to misfire. I got my code from Lindsay years ago and renamed it to "left mouse button down: & "left mouse button up:"
I primarily use it with my ergonomic mouse to spare any stress on my fingers and hands. I don’t think I’ve ever used in a script
I do not think the command is dangerous. From my point of view it’s more dangerous using drag number to number because the numbers can be misinterpreted. For example Dragon is always confusing 30 with 13.
Statistically, I agree with you I’ve had more problems with drag number misrecognition than I’ve ever had with "left mouse down"
fortunately I’m pretty good at advanced search within Windows so I’ve never really lost anything. Plus even if I trash something I’ve incremental backup so I can go back and pull it off the backup
cRon FWIW I think that a copy/paste command against the intag numbers would be a good idea. You really don’t have that many intag specific commands
Just “Copy x to Paste y” where x and y are the intag numbers would be good enough for me.
Just where x and y are the intag numbers would be good enough for me.I’ve added and am testing, “Copy x” “Paste y”. I think this would work more reliably.
Okay no worries I created my own script now to hold the mouse down and release.
