insert "100" followed by TAB-key

Recommended Posts


I need something to "automatically" insert a number in a form and go to the next.


I have to assign grades to my students online. One line by one and there from 0 to 100 points. I have 140 students and want to be a little bit faster. So now I insert e.g. 100 than TAB and again 100 ...


My dream would be to insert in Alfred grade NUMBER and Alfred will insert the number and jumps to the next line (this works via tabulator key).


Has someone an idea for this?

Thanks a lot

You can simulate a tab keypress with AppleScript:


tell application "System Events" to key code 48


Not sure how that's faster than hitting TAB yourself.
