I will occasionally be posting my Memsource-related AutoHotkey scripts here. Here is the first (tiny) one.

You can just hover your mouse pointer over a single word in the source box, and click a shortcut (F5 here, but can be changed), and Memsource will automatically trigger the "Search TM/TB" shortcut. Note that it only works with single words, as double-clicking on a single word in the Memsource Desktop editor select the word, which is a necessary part of my script.

; ! = Alt
; ^ = Control
; # = windows
; + = shift

; auto-search for terms in termbase in MemSource; executes a double click at the current mouse position

MouseClick, left
MouseClick, left
Send, ^+k ;sends: Ctrl+Shift+k




PS: note that in AHK code, a semicolon comments stuff out, so anything after a ; is just commentary, and won't be executed.
