Automa 2.7.0: press_and_hold

We're happy to report that Automa 2.7.0 has just been released. Besides some small bug fixes, notable new features are the commands press_and_hold(...) and release(...). These two commands can be combined to press, hold and release keyboard keys. For example, the following snippet starts the Chrome web browser and zooms in using the mouse wheel, by pressing and holding the CTRL key:

start('Chrome')
press_and_hold(CTRL)
scroll_up()
release(CTRL)

Support for these commands was added because our users and customers requested them. If you would like to request a feature, please let us know via our contact page. (Priority is given to paying customers.)

The new version can as usual be downloaded from our download page. Happy automating!
