New-ish user purchased new PC Windows 8 installed. Loving the ABBYY software AND the new PC, but app called "Auto Hot key" (.ahk) does NOT seem to work for me in Win 8. Have tried and re-tried.

When I use the "F8" key which is supposed to initiate the hot key string (in this case Page_), instead I get a vertical bar saying something like "use F6" to edit Text mode." Doesn't help.

Is there any solution to this issue short of my UNinstalling Windows 8 and 'dumbing down' to Win. 7 for this to work? Thanks much. Otherwise satisfied and impressed by functionality! JSJ
