    When will the new version be officially released? Still using 5.6.5.0
    Currently there is a minor difference bvetween 5.6.5.0 (released) and 5.6.5.1 (beta).

    A new version of SCM will be released early January with a new and interesting plug-in.

    @YouAndMeAndI,
    Listen you troll, ShortcutMe has all the simple setting features every other app has. So everyone can enjoy using it.

    But, for smart people who don't want to wait for a developer to add a feature for them (if even possible) ShortcutMe let them write their own macros suitable for their BB OS and installed apps. But off course that is for smart people. You should stay away from macros.

    This YouAndMeAndI troll, opened his CB account this morning at 3:47 and within 16 minutes posted 13 posts finishing with post # 12 and 13 as the troll ads on ShortcutMe threads.
    He didn't post anything else after that.

    Yet another fishy troll, advertising for the very same app!

    YouAndMeAndI is now deleted.

    When editing multiclick setup, pressing the space key doesn't automatically move the cursor down to the macro section. Running 5.9.5.1_OS7_T on 9900/7.1.0.190

    Sorry if I've already missed this being added. No clue if this is even possible (yet?) But IsHotspotOn and IsHotspotConnected would be awesome. Maybe it's because I use a shrunk OS (doubt it) but the timeout doesn't work reliably for me (to auto turn off hotspot when not connected) so I have a macro I'd like to write.

    I will check and see if RIM has made the hotspot APIs developer friendly. If so, I will add IsHotspotOn and IsHotspotConnected macros.

    I am new to Shortcutme. Created a shortcut BSS to change bbm status to sleeping. Created a shortcut P to change profile to Phone Calls Only. Both shortcuts work fine. Created a shortcut to cascade the 2, ie P; BSS neither shortcut works? Any suggestions?
    Basically, I can not get shortcuts to cascade.

    What is 'App Name' set to in your P and BBS shortcut?

    To make sure I and other bloggers can help, consider posting your shortcuts, including macros (you can use 'Email this Shortcut' menu item in Shortcut Setting page to get the shortcut in text form)

    Try changing P shortcut to this:

    App Name: Macro
    ...
    Macros:
    LaunchAndWait Profiles;
    MenuItemFromTop 7;
    NavClick;

    ok. Any suggestions on the other one, as it also hangs when I try to cascade it.

    Why do you have 1000 in your cascaded shortcut parameter?

    @Phoney49,

    I think you have an extra 'ESCKey' in your BSS macro shortcut:
    ...
    EndWhile0;
    EscKey; /* this one should be removed? */
    If1 IsAppForeground BlackBerry Messenger;
    ...

    Edit: Looks like that you intensionally open and close BBM once using ESC key.
    So, tell me where your cascaded shortcut crashes (do you know how far your macros are executed before crashing?)

    I had to add a delay after ESCKey in your BBS macro to get it to work:

    SetLedColor b;
    Led On;
    Launch BlackBerry Messenger_BG;
    While0 !IsAppForeground BlackBerry Messenger;
    Do0;
    Delay1;
    EndWhile0;
    EscKey;
    Delay 500; /* I added this one because generally you need to give BB UI some time to close the app after hitting ESCKey */
    ....

    A cascaded shortcut (parameter BBS;1000;P) works fine if you change P shortcut to this:

    App Name: Macro
    Macros:
    Launch Profiles;
    Delay 200;
    MenuItemFromTop 7;
    NavClick;

    Removing the extra ESCKey solved the problem, thank you.

    Perfect!

    I liked the macro shortcut you have written for BBM.

    Just generally regarding macros, whereever your macro opens/closes a panel/menu/screen/app, make sure to put a Delay macro after that to allow BB UI to re-draw the screen.

    1000 means that SCM waits 1000 mSec before running the next shortcut.
    Only Cascaded function accepts a parameter like that.

    Agree.

    Very unreliable notification system for CB forum. Sometimes I get a notification email about new posts, sometime I don't

    I did not write that macro, I copied it from someone on the forums.

    Thanks for your help.

    I've written a few macros to switch the convenience key to Camera, Vlingo or Shortcutme. They work, but they have what I feel are extra steps due to the way the menu is for the convenience key.

    The menu has a set of "suggested" options at the top, followed by all available apps on the device. Also, the current setting is placed at the top of the list UNLESS it is one of the "suggested" apps. To get around this I made the macro open the menu and change the current selection to the 3rd item from top (anything between 2 and 10 should do the same), so I have a know starting point before choosing the option I want.
    Does anyone have a way to avoid the extra step?

    Have we identified what happens to the isBTOn prompting screen as experienced on first page of this post? I'm seeing the same prompt on my bb9900 running platform 5.0.0.464.

    using IsBTOn while Bluetooth is off will always prompt you. This is on RIM to fix, it's nothing to do with ShortcutMe. That's just the way the API behaves :< only RIM can change it.

    *EDIT*
    I have macros that "ignore" the prompt if you want them, as in, bluetooth WILL turn on or off, no matter what you choose in the prompt. but you will still be prompted, and you will still have to select something (your choice does not effect the outcome)

    Thank you very much Juggalo. I thought there is a way to fix it since I saw Vijik mentioning it was no issue for him. Oh well. I guess I have to live with that then.

    Another question though. Is there a way I can stop convenience key to launch SCM when the screen is locked? For me, if I press the convenience key when the screen is locked, when I unlock the screen, the SCM is already there...
