MACRO MENU





This is a pop-up macro for WordPerfect 5.1. It generates a double
column window on your screen and offers up to 20 macros that can then be
commanded by entering 1 thru 0 or A thru J at the prompt. WP51 will then
execute that macro and return you to your document. The first three menu
items have been setup to permit you to easily change to {LIST FILES} in a sub-
directory of WP51 before accessing various documents, and the fourth takes you
to {LIST FILES} in the WP51 directory. You can exit the MACRO MENU by
entering {ESC}, {F7} or {F1}.

I have assigned the MACRO MENU to the ALT-X key to make it easy for me,
but you can easily change it to another ALT- key, a CTRL- key or a named
macro. Refer to your manuals for correct procedures.

Modify the macro via the macro editor ({ctrl-F10}, {ALT-X}). Enter the
name of your macro in the "window", after the number or letter that you want
to associate with the macro. Be careful to preserve the same number of spaces
in each line of the macro (51, not counting {^R} or {^S}), or your pop-up
"window" will not be symetrical. Then use {Pg-Dn} to find the LABEL section
associated with the menu item you are changing. Enter your macro strokes
between {DISPLAYOFF} and {QUIT}, then {EXIT} and you are ready to try it out.

The macro editor will not permit you to block copy or import your macro
keystrokes. I suggest that you develop complex macros outside of the MACRO
MENU, copy down the exact keystrokes and then transcribe them into MACRO MENU.
All troubleshooting and debugging should be done outside of MACRO MENU.
