Not from within RH. You should be able to set up such a macro using Macro Express and you will soon find yourself using it to set up all sorts of macros. Great product. BKReplaceEm is free but the interface is not as good. Macro Express has a trial period so nothing to lose.
I know this is an old thread (2008), but I'm asking again to see if things have changed.
The solution I found isn't optimal.
1. View > Toolbars > Customize.
2. Click the Keyboard tab.
3. Under Category, select Apply Conditional Build Tag.
4. Under Commands, select New/Multiple (that's the only command listed).
5. Press a new shortcut key.
6. Click Assign.
I couldn't see a way to assign a key to applying a specific tag. What I did here brings up the Conditional Build Tag dialog (the one you get from choosing Format > Apply Conditional Build Tag > New/Multiple). Then you have to select the tag (or tags) and click OK.
I need to go in and apply a specific condition to multiple topics, and this has an extra two keystrokes, plus waiting for a dialog to open and close.
Other than Macro Express, any suggestions?
I'm using RoboHelp 9 on Windows 7.
Has anyone used the open source tool Autohotkey? (http://www.autohotkey.com/)
I don't mind writing macros and I wouldn't have a problem paying for MacroExpress, but I'm working in a contract position and I don't know if they'd want to purchase this, and I don't know if I want to purchase it myself. So, an open-source, free item might be a good solution for now.
I just tried AutoHotKey, but it looks a lot more complicated/featured than I need or would be able to devote the time to learning. It doesn't come with a macro recorder, but people have developed scripts, and once again, I wouldn't have the time to devote to sorting them out.
I tried WinParrot. It was easy to record a macro, but it didn't play back the way I thought it would. I also couldn't figure out how to assign my new macro to a key.
Oh, well. I've exhausted my "play time" to figure it out. I'd be interested in hearing about an experiments that anyone else have tried, especially if they work
