Xtype how to hold down a key?

Hi Everyone,

I need to use the XType to hold down the Ctrl, press first A then X, then release the Ctrl.
How do I archieve this using Xtype?.
I have tried adding the two separate combinations (ctrl+A and ctrl+X) but it doesn’t work.

Any suggestion?.

Thank you


This feature is not yet available, but it sounds useful. I added it to our todo list.

Meanwhile, here is a suggestion for a workaround: Use an on-screen keyboard and then use XClick instead of XType.

Mac has the same:

Thank you for the quick answer, I’ll try this!.

If you don’t mind calling bash or batch scripts via XRunAndWait - I have had great results with xdotool.
