  1. Macro Express Pro v Macro Express Pro v has been released and is now ready for download. For more information, including a description of the recent changes to Macro Express Pro, please see our Revision History on our website. A newsletter will be released soon which will cover the changes and give more hints and tricks. The latest version of Macro Express Pro may be downloaded from the Macro Express download page.
  2. We are aware of this issue and have fixed it. The fix will be part of the next release of the program.
  3. The more reports we have, the better we are able to track down the actual cause of the issue, so it is preferable to have multiple reports of the same crash. Sometimes issues that seem to be the same problem are actually multiple issues while one issue may cause several different problems across the program. Once we receive the reports, we will associate them together in our bug tracking software so when the issue is fixed, you should only receive one notice instead of multiple notices.
  4. It depends on the type of drop down menu. Here are some different methods depending on the type of drop down: Type out the first few letters of the word. You would need to type alab to get Alabama. Type the first letter of the word several times. Type A four times to get Arkansas. Type the first letter and then the down arrow button. Type N once and then the down arrow 3 times to get to New Jersey. Unfortunately, drop downs menus, like other controls, are controlled by the operating system and so there is not really a way to alter their performance.
  5. You can set up a cell or column to allow leading zero's by clicking on on Format > Cell. From Format Cells window, click on Custom in the category list. You can then set the cell up to allow leading zero's. You can find formatting information in the Excel Help by searching 'leading zero'.
  6. I used the Move File/Files command to move the folder. I have uploaded a screenshot of the settings used. This completely moved the folder. No folder was left on the C drive named Development.
  7. You can move a folder by using the Move File/Files command. Just don't specify a specific file in the path for the file to be moved. e.g. Move File/Files: C:\Program Files\TestFolder instead of Move File/Files: C:\Program Files\TestFolder\TestFile.txt
  8. The title bar cannot be turned off. This is so that there is some part of the window to grab onto to move the menu when necessary.
  9. The file mxe is correct. MEX is the file extension for macro files and MXE is the extension for a playable macro. As no errors are displayed, it sounds like the macro is running. You could test this by placing a Text Box Display command in the playable macro. If it appears, then you may want to check the file paths that are being used in the playable macros to make sure that nothing has been moved or changed.
  10. The decision was made to skip comments to help optimize the macro. Less lines = less execution time.
  11. When running the debugger in the scripting editor, comment lines are ignored as they are not real code. This means that the line is completely skipped and never checked for a break point.
  12. You are correct. This is no longer possible. You can however, make a copy of the macro and set it to popup. To do so, make a copy of the floating menu macro and then check the option to build as a popup menu when selecting the new activation.
  13. Unfortunately, there is not an official list. Some users may have created their own however.
  14. I can't think of a way to password protect a text file. However, you could use the File Attribute command to mark it as read only. This would allow them to look at it, but not modify it unless they go into the properties and remove the Read Only flag. This is not a true solution, but more of a deterrent. You could also use the File Attribute command to mark the file as hidden. Again, not a true solution, but it would hide the file unless they have the Show Hidden Files option selected in their File Explorer.
  15. 3.7d is the latest version. We have not written or released version 3.7e.
