How To Send A Single Keyboard Shortcut

Keyboard shortcuts require the keys to be sent simultaneously to replicate pressing all the keys together at once. So when you add a task to a control in the app, make sure that Send Tasks is set to Simultaneously. Then just add the keystrokes that make up the keyboard shortcut.

For example, to send the Command a keyboard shortcut, your task should be entered as follows:

Send Tasks: Simultaneously
Keystroke: Cmd
Keystroke: a

 

How To Send Multiple Keyboard Shortcuts

To send multiple keyboard shortcuts, each keyboard shortcut must be contained in its own Send Tasks: Simultaneously group. To add a new group, simply press the + button on the tasks screen and select New Group.

For example, to send the Command a keyboard shortcut, followed by the Command c keyboard shortcut, your task should be entered as follows:

Send Tasks: Simultaneously
Keystroke: Cmd
Keystroke: a

Send Tasks: Simultaneously
Keystroke: Cmd
Keystroke: c

 

How To Send Sequential Keystrokes

To send sequential keystrokes make sure that Send Tasks is set to Sequentially. This will send the keys separately one after the other, as if typing individual keys.

For example, to send the x key, followed by the y key, followed by the z key, enter your task as follows:

Send Tasks: Sequentially
Keystroke: x
Keystroke: y
Keystroke: z

 

How To Send A Mix Of Keyboard Shortcuts And Sequential Keys

Use multiple groups to send a mix of keyboard shortcuts and sequential keys. To add a new group, press the + button on the tasks screen and select New Group.

The following example will first send the x, y, and z keys sequentially, then the Command a keyboard shortcut, and finally the Command c keyboard shortcut.

Send Tasks: Sequentially
Keystroke: x
Keystroke: y
Keystroke: z

Send Tasks: Simultaneously
Keystroke: Cmd
Keystroke: a

Send Tasks: Simultaneously
Keystroke: Cmd
Keystroke: c

 

How To Switch Pages In A Multi Page Layout

To add more pages to your keyboard layout, go to Design Mode, select Layout Settings, and then enter the number of pages you need. Note that there is also an option to enable or disable scrolling.

If scrolling is enabled, to switch between pages go into Use Mode, and then swipe your finger left or right.

If scrolling is disabled, then the only way to switch pages is to add a control to the layout with an action that switches to a different page. To do this, edit your control as normal and go to the tasks screen, press the + button and select Switch To Page. Then select the page you want to switch to when the control is used.
