AutoHotkey Kit for MuseScore
The topic of this forum thread is an extensive collection of macros for the Windows platform.
The document AutoHotkey_for_MuseScore.pdf describes how you can build (parts of) this collection yourself.
Because of its size it comes in two attachments. Please merge the two to get the page numbering right.
The pdf is divided in two parts: an Intro section and a Reference section.
The Intro section includes a hands-on approach in case you are a first-time user of AutoHotkey without any technical background.
The kit contains several files aimed at the learning process.
There is a step by step explanation of what you have to do yourself to get the macros you're interested in working.
The central issue of the Intro got the name 'Defined State'.
If all aspects of your preferred screen layout are instantly reproducible it's not difficult to imagine what the automation of mouse actions combined with MuseScore shortcuts could do.
You get instant access to all frequently used Inspector fields and to the most important properties hidden in subwindows.
For reasons of clarity this part is rather verbose, meant for users who see sense in automating constantly recurring tasks but shrink in some degree from the technical issues.
There are many info screens and tooltips to assist you in preparing and using the macros.
Many macros don't need additional data, many others do.
The additional data constitute the DIY part of the Kit. They include numbers and images.
Most images - of items in the Statusbar and in the Inspector - serve to verify which elements are selected.
Most numbers are coordinates of hotspots or surfaces operating on the screen or on sub-windows of MuseScore.
The depository of the coordinates and all other values is the file Coordinates.ahk.
Essential to this project is easy maintenance, especially after updates of MuseScore.
That's why the 'Master' group of macros contains utilities to test almost all DIY items.
Coordinates.txt to rename in Coordinates.ahk (see post 2 about renaming)
HotKeys_in_prefix_order.txt is an inventory of all hotkeys plus the macro-group in which they occur.
