Programmers can use Windows API in QM as easily as in C/C++. The programming language has everything for Windows programming. Over 30000 dll functions, user-defined types, constants and COM interfaces are predeclared. Other declarations can be downloaded separately. Supports pointers, callbacks, etc.
Text autocompletion or replacement as you type an abbreviation (short text). It works in any application.
Multiple threads. Several independent user-defined functions can run simultaneously.
Run some macros in separate processes. By default, macros run in QM process.
QM works well on Vista/7/8. The UAC is not a problem. QM can run with various UAC integrity levels. Macros can run with different integrity levels.
Run macros on other network computers. Of course, QM must be running there.
Temporarily unlock computer to run a macro. Disable keyboard and mouse.
Use international characters (Unicode). QM uses UTF-8 text encoding.
Macros are stored in single file, but you can use multiple macro list files. Export and import macros.
Various tools. Type library and ActiveX control browser, icon tools, process/window/control tree, and more.
Extend QM. Add new functions, classes, triggers, use various libraries. Add more features to triggers, toolbars.
