Properties:

Text to Send:

Insert keystrokes to send as text. Special keys and modifiers can be accessed below the box. Control is under Insert Modifier, and Control-a, for example, needs to appear in the form {Control}({A}). Any Key, as compared to a character, must be written here in braces and capitalized, such as {A}. Within Modifiers, Keys must be used, not characters like 'a' or '$'. For a complete list of the Key Codes corresponding to the keyboard keys, please consult the topic "Valid Key Codes for the Send Keys Action".

Delay Between Keystrokes:

Choose a time to delay between keystrokes to avoid input errors.
