Help with script - Copy clipboard content into custom field in Project Settings

Hi everyone!

I need some help with perfecting a script. I used Nora’s script as a starting point. My script works… sometimes. There are some problems with the sleep delays, as my computer can be slow to open the project settings, but that I can adjust.

What happens often is that the CTRL + V step is sent too soon/late (not quite sure), so I can see the script play out, but nothing is copied into the custom field. 

I tried using super long sleep times to see if it was just a matter of speed, but it didn’t seem to prevent the problem.

Any idea? Maybe using Clipboard commands instead of the ctrl + v one? I’m an (enthusiastic) ahk beginner so I’m not yet familiar with the Clipboard commands! 

Here’s a Screenshot of the custom field and my current script:






^+t::

Send Proj
Sleep 999
Send Lang
Sleep 999
Send All
Sleep 999
Send TR
Sleep 999
Send U
Sleep 999
Send {Tab 2}
Sleep 999
Send {F2}
Sleep 999
Send ^v
Sleep 999
Send {F2}
Sleep 999
Send {Enter}

When in the Project screen with a project selected, the hotkey should open Project settings, navigate to the Update screen, open the custom field and copy the content of the clipboard, then close the text box and move selection to the OK button without clicking it, allowing me to double check the copied text before clicking ok.

Thanks in advance!
