Matlab does not play well with AutoHotKey; how to fix?
6 views (last 30 days)
I use AutoHotKey to automate certain keystrokes (e.g., to get a µ I type alt-m on my Windows laptop). AHK monitors the keyboard input and, when a trigger sequence is recognized, substitutes the key or sequence defined in its script; it's always alive in the background. This works in every application except Matlab. Is there some way to have Matlab use standard keyboard input in the standard way, in particular, to accept the virtual keys dispatched from AHK? (I don't know anything about the internals of AHK beyond what I've deduced from observation.)

This is truely weird. From my observations it used to work quite fine on WinXP with R2011b and 2013b. Now on Win7 it still works in R2013b but not in R2011b. I have to mention though that I never really used it in MATLAB only Simulink but that seems to make no difference.
