Can Macro Recorder perform optical character recognition (OCR)?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is the electronic conversion of text written on the computer display into machine-encoded text.

Can Macro Recorder be used as a mouse auto clicker?
Macro Recorder can be used as an mouse auto clicker with ease:
To perform auto clicks, simply add and configure a mouse click action.
You can specify the coordinate of the click on the desktop, the click option (left-/right or double-click).
If required, you can also configure Macro Recorder to click and keep clicking while performing additional tasks, such as keyboard input or mouse movements.
Can macro recordings be scheduled?
Macro Recorder can utilize the "task-scheduler" built into Microsoft Windows in combination with our productivity solution PhraseExpress.
We believe, that you don't need another background program or service occupying extra memory and consuming CPU power while the Windows scheduler is running anyway. By using Windows scheduler, you have one central place to check out what is scheduled on your computer.

No, Macro Recorder does not have any "stealth mode" and is not designed to work as a spyware. You can recognize a recording by the Macro Recorder icon in the task/menu bar.
