Random generates whole numbers, so if we generate a number between 10 and 22 then divide it by 100, we get what you're looking for. Then we can use it as a variable. I'm not too sure what you mean by a random click, but am guessing it's a random wait between clicks (because mouse movements need to be whole numbers too). So this will get you the number you need :

Code: Select all

Let>LowerLimit=10
Let>UpperLimit=22
Ran>{%UpperLimit%-%LowerLimit%},rr
Let>rr={(%rr%+%LowerLimit%)/100}

Wait>%rr%
