New Book of Jack’s Motley Assortment of AutoHotkey Tips


Jack’s Motley Assortment
of AutoHotkey  Tips

A Living Book

CoverImage200This first edition of my new book Jack’s Motley Assortment of AutoHotkey Tips includes more than 80 chapters of AutoHotkey tips, tricks, and techniques. But, that only reflects the starting point for this Living book. Every six months to a year, I will add 30 or more new chapters based upon my current explorations of AutoHotkey. If you purchase this book, you will get all of these new editions free. You only need to buy this book once.

To review the “Table of Contexts” and “Index”, see this Motley Tips page.

Miscellaneous AutoHotkey Tips

Jack’s Motley Assortment of AutoHotkey Tips contains a wide variety of techniques for both beginning and more advanced users (e.g. Regular Expressions (RegEx) and Web scraping). Many of the techniques in this book come from currently unpublished articles. I’ve done my best to bring a semblance of order to the chapters and group them into sections based upon common themes. Some appear in order based upon application or type of AutoHotkey techniques (e.g. Clipboard usage, window manipulation) while others explore specific commands (e.g. the WinSet command). I recommend three methods for searching for specific topics:

  1. Scan the “Table of Contents” for specific chapters or topics.
  2. Use the alphabetical “Index” at the back of the book to locate topics, commands, or tips. (Check “Tips” in the “Index” for a long narrative type list of the various techniques covered in this book.)
  3. Use the search capability in your e-book or PDF software to search for relevant information.

Some topics continue as a work-in-progress (i.e. AutoHotkey Reference Tool). As I update the book, more chapters will appear—adding to the solutions.

To determine if you own the most recent version of Jack’s Motley Assortment of AutoHotkey Tips, you can check the date of publication, the edition number, or the chapter number within the book. Whenever I release a new version, I will change the first two at the ComputorEdge E-Books site. Within the book, I plan to use new numbers for new chapters. For example, in the first edition every chapter uses the digit 1 as the second part of the number (e.g. “3.1.4 Blocking Mouse Action”). When I add chapters to the next edition, I plan to use the digit 2 as the second part of the number (e.g. “3.2.6 Special Mouse Considerations”). This numbering system will make it easier to identify new content in new versions of the book.
