I am trying to globally apply a sublime like parenthesis with phrase defined in autokey that when triggered types () and moves mouse cursor left once which is pressing left arrow key in the keyboard. Currently I am doing...

()| -> left arrow once -> (|)

What I want...

right away (|)

Does anybody know how to say autokey to move mouse cursor left?

The final cursor position can be defined using <cursor> in your script. Hence, your phrase would become

(<cursor>)
