The Press command doesn't support some ASCII characters such as hash ("Press #") or exclamation mark ("Press !").

    Press was designed to identify keys after virtual key names (VK_) defined in the Java KeyEvent class. The command was not intended to support direct ASCII characters.

    The Type and Typeline commands on the other hand handle the text as a character or a sequence of characters and may be used to press such characters - "Type #" and "Type !" should work fine in such a case.

    Anyway it is easy to extend the Press functionality to support these keys. The fix has been committed to the CVS and will be released in 2.0.3.
