Encrypted Text


When viewing or editing the contents of the macro, the encrypted text displays as encrypted text - *****.  The command is handy for passwords and the like so that people snooping through the program cannot readily uncover passwords. Use this along with the Password command for additional security.




Script Editor > Expand Keyboard Category > Encrypted Text



Enter the text to be encrypted into the text edit field. Whatever is typed into this field appears as above, a series of dots. Each dot represents a character input. The actual text is typed when the macro is played back, not the encrypted dots.


 Click on this icon to view the text that is typed, to ensure that it is correct. Releasing the mouse changes the text back to the encrypted view.



Store the text in a variable

Place the encrypted text into a variable with this option. Enter the variable name or select from the list of variables previously defined in the macro.
