    AutoHotKey doesn't work in Solidworks

    Alex Hsia

      Hey all,

       

      I'm trying to use AutoHotKey, https://autohotkey.com/docs/AutoHotkey.htm with Solidworks 2016. I can get scripts to work outside of Solidworks, but when I'm in Solidworks, the re-mapped keys revert back to their default mapping. After running the following script, outside of Solidworks when I type "q" I get a "w", but when I'm in Solidworks it still types "w". Do I need to enable something in Solidworks to allow external hotkeys?

       

      q:: w

      Return

       

      Thanks in advance
