Autocomplete pop up appears after pasting link (from AHK macro)

Steps to reproduce

Create an AHK macro that selects a link on the current line you are on and then copies it and then paste it into the pane above then return focus back to the lower pane.

Expected result

I expect to just see the link pasted in upper pane and the focus returned to lower pane.

Actual result

About half of the time, and sometimes much less than half the time, the link is correctly pasted; however, there is an auto complete pop up left open in upper pane.

Additional information

I am sorry, but we don’t handle outside scripts problems as bugs. Maybe you can rewrite you AHK script to not trigger the popup window.

My bad.

Ok thanks. Good idea. I just added an Escape and an additional shortcut for focusing on lower pane, and it is working.

I was about to suggest that.
I am not sure if I remember correctly but I think AHK as a way of sending characters as if you were typeing from the keyboard and another mode that is like copy-paste.
