    This request/issue was brought up in 2009 and I am would like to revive it. In
    order to be able to select radio buttons or checkboxes with Autotype there
    needs to be a way to simulate a space bar key press with Autotype. Autotype
    will input spaces when testing autotype in Notepad, but it is not recognized
    as a space bar key press when trying to select a radio button or checkbox.

    Does anyone know a workaround?

    What is the likelihood of the enhancement request (2872336 submitted on
    2009-10-03) being implemented?

    there needs to be a way to simulate a space bar key press

    Does Tabbing to element and pressing of the Enter key have the same effect?

    I've tried that, but since there is a Submit button on the same page, an Enter
    key press activates or "clicks" the Submit button instead of selecting the
    check box or radio button.
