problem with date and time text expander
Posted: Aug 10th, ’19, 09:44
The main thing that I use fastkeys for is to quickly enter a date and time stamp. In fastkeys, I setup a Text Expander command so that when I press "dt" (for the date) some text such as "2019 08 Aug 10 1140" will be written. I accomplished this by sending the following command: "%A_YYYY% %A_MM% %A_MMM% %A_DD% %A_Hour%%A_Min%". However, the problem is that very frequently it is as if the Shift key is held down for at least one of the characters even when I am not pressing the Shift key. So for example something like "2019 0* aug 10 1141" will be written. Then I have to go back and correct the wrong Shift key character, which somewhat defeats the purpose of the time saving feature. This problem does not happen every single time, but I would say that it occurs about 80-90% of the time. How can I fix this?
