    ShortcutMe is now BB OS 7 ready and it is available for 9900/9930 on mobihand & channels (incl. CrackBerry) stores.

    http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...stroke-639979/

    Please don't send email to our customer support asking about availability of ShortcutMe for your new BlackBerry Bold.
    If you already have sent email, apologize me for not answering (there are several hundred emails and I simply can't answer them).

    Have fun with your Bold 9900/9930 (the best BlackBerry device ever IMOP)

    Based on the email you wrote to support, it looks like that you got it to work.
    Please edit your post when you get time.

    @vijik: I believe that I've discovered a major bug in SCM v5.7.1.0 Touch. Using Key macro when menu is exposed does not navigate to the next menu item starting with the typed character on my BlackBerry® Bold™ Touch 9930. This breaks many of my existing macros.

    This just shows a change in OS7 comparing to earlier BB OS versions.

    Have you tried using 'SpKey' instead of 'Key' macro?

    That is it! You, my friend, are a genius (and quick, too).

    Now, I just need to go through my macros to determine which ones are affected. (Thank you, RIM!)

    If you have many macro shortcuts to modify, you might want to do all those modifications on a laptop/PC (with search/replace function):

    - Store all of your ShortcutMe settings on uSD (Store Configs),
    - Connect your BB to a PC/Laptop, select 'USB Drive',
    - Modify the file 'shortcutmeconfig.txt' on the uSD card,
    - When done modifying save that file,
    - Disconnect the BB,
    - Restore ShortcutMe settings (Restore Configs).

    'Key', 'SpKey' for simulating a BB hot key click on BB Home Screen might also need to be changed if RIM has changed the behavior of the Home Screen in BB OS 7.

    This post is to reply to those 2 customers who asked how to switch to 3G or 2G using ShortcutMe:

    --AppName: Macro

    --Parameter:

    --Macros:

    Launch Options; Key Mobile Network; /* Find Mobile Network in BB Options */
    NavMoveDown1;Delay50; /* Assuming that only 2 items are shown and the second one is 'Mobile Network' */
    NavClick;Delay100;
    NavMoveDown4; /* Go to Network Mode in Mobile Network */
    NavClick;MenuItemFromTop1;Delay50; /*Select 3G from the list */
    NavClick;Delay50;
    EscKey;EscKey;EscKey;

    Vijik,
    I just purchased Bold 9900. Mobihand does not allow to change SCM version from OS 5 to OS 7... since they don't sell the app anymore. I wrote you a new times asking on helping me on how to change my version (get a new license#) so that I can get it installed on my Bold, but I have not heard back from you in 3 days. I have been a loyal customer for over a year and I think I deserve an answer. Please write to zorik29 at yahoo dot com.

    There is a serious problem with this macro setup for switching to 2g/3g.
    If you find yourself to be already in "options" and not exactly on the first line (ringtones) then running the macro will get you someplace else and mess up your options settings. Found out the hard way.

    I tried to put "escape" after first launch options and "launch options" second time but it did not work

    Launch Options; Delay 50;
    ESCKey; Delay 50; (**to escape to main menu in case you are already in options***)
    Launch Options; Delay 50;
    ...etc...

    ..... BUT did not work

    Try the following (it was offered by another forum contributor a while back, but I forgot who):

    Set $loop=1;
    While0 IsAppRunning Options && $loop<9;
    LaunchAndWait Options;Do0;
    EscKey;
    Inc $loop;
    EndWhile0;
    ---------
    Ensures that Options screen is closed before starting to navigate through pages in Options.

    Very cool macro, visortgw.
    However you need to move "LaunchAndWait Options" inside the While-loop, so that your macro looks like this:

    Set $loop=1;
    While0 IsAppRunning Options && $loop<9;
    Do0;
    LaunchAndWait Options;

    EscKey;
    Inc $loop;
    EndWhile0;

    I want to have a go with NFC tags. I bought NFC Launcher last month when it was on sale, and have just picked up Shortcutme too. This app is probably the most complicated I've ever seen, which I'm sure is down to my ignorance.

    I have worked out how to add a few basic shortcuts, but am really lost on macro's. My ultimate aim is to turn wifi off and go from 3G to 2G when I tap a tag on the way out of the house, and vice versa. I have seen the post on the previous page about this.

    Can anyone please point me in the right direction for a VERY BASIC guide in how to write a macro, and more importantly where to input the data into the app?

    Thanks in advance.

    @quattrojames,

    Concept:

    1- Create a macro shortcut in ShortcutMe that does what you want. (Lets assume you set that shortcut to have MSH keys)

    2- Set an NFC tag to launch that shortcut (Launch: ShortcutMe, Parameter: MSH)

    For 1 above please start with reading the thread below:

    You're welcome.

    I have seen users who did not know anything about macros first, but then, a week later, wrote long macros to do things no other app could do (not even ShortcutMe).
    Some have even wrote macros that can easily be called an application.
