Finally I can Cut+Paste in Flash

Ok, so I’m old fashioned.  Not to mention, right-handed.

I prefer to use PC keys for cut, copy and paste, which are shift+del, ctrl+ins, shift+ins respectively.

They don’t work in Flash.  Usually, when you try to cut (shift-delete), you actually delete, which is very frustrating six minutes later when you can’t paste.

So I’ve installed AutoHotKey (, and added this as a script:

+Del::Send ^x
^Ins::Send ^c
+Ins::Send ^v

This now works everywhere 🙂
