.topic Macros

Macros are recorded keyboard and mouse events. All keystrokes and mouse
events are saved to a disk file, from which they can be recalled later
for playback. Each macro must have a name, up to 50 characters long. The
length and number of macros is limited only by available disk space.

.topic Recording

To initiate recording of a macro, simply use the Macros/Record menu option.
You will be presented with a dialog box that will have you enter a name for
the macro. The name will automatically be converted to upper-case, and spaces
will be converted to underscores. Accept the dialog box, and recording will

To record the playback of other macros, simply use the Macros/Playback
menu option to pick a macro for playback. When recording the playback of
other macros, pick the macros alphanumerically, rather than with cursor
keys or the mouse, as the position of a macro on the list can change with
the addition or deletion of macros.

To stop recording, use the Recording/Stop Recording menu option.


.topic Playback

To playback a macro, simply pick it from the list offered in the
Macros/Playback menu option.

When recording a macro that plays back other macros, pick the macros for
playback by entering the name of the macro when in the list, (use the
complete name to anticipate the addition of similar macros in the future).
The list will apha-numerically select the macro you desire. This is the
better way to select macros, rather than by position as selected by the
mouse or cursor keys, because the changes in the macro list caused by
additions and deletions of macros will not affect the proper selection of
the macro.

When selecting a macro alph-numerically, spaces will automatically be
replaced with underscores, as spaces are not allowed in the macro name.


.topic Deleting

You can delete macros by using the Macros/Delete menu option. Pick the macro
you wish to delete from the list, and the macro will be deleted after you
confirm the action.

Be careful deleting macros, as you may delete a macro that is used by
another macro. If this happens, the macro handler has no way of knowing that
the macro has been deleted, and another macro will be payed back, disrupting
the proper sequence of events.
