is it possible to execute keyboard commands?
 
I am using #input and it is really helpful to be prompted with the needed commands, but there are also occasions where the prompt turns out to be the wrong thing...

is there a way to effectively ctrl+a or select all the command line following an input trigger? this would allow the user to immediately type over the #input

Thank you for reading

#input has a second optional parameter.

#input "this sample will be highlighted"
will put that text in the box but not select it

#input "this sample will be highlighted" 1
will put that text in the box and select all of it (so pressing any key overwrites/deletes it)
