I have a Microsoft Word command called "remove highlight" that makes use of the "alt" hotkeys and the Word command ribbon. So my command was as follows:

 

Sub Main
    SendKeys "%h"
    Wait 0.1
    SendKeys "i"
    Wait 0.1
    SendKeys "n"
End Sub

But now I have a conflicting command from an Autohotkey script that uses %h.

 

I don't want to disable this Autohotkey script, because it's useful in Microsoft Word as well as in other contexts. 

 

So I'm wondering, is there a more direct way  to activate the "remove highlight" function in Microsoft Word?



I looked through the hotkeys in Microsoft Word, but I can't find one that maps directly to removing a highlight.

 

I would love to program the remove highlight function in Microsoft Word to some hotkey, like ^%+h and then be able to activate it via both my voice command and the keyboard.
