  1. There is still an option to display the full path in the title bar. F4 will focus the address control and you could do Ctrl+A then clipboard copy. I'm guessing one could use a Macro Control commands also. But it might give the 'pretty' display text of the address control. You could also use the Copy Path command and drop the name of the file or folder selected. You could also fire off the Properties dialog and use the "Location" control.
  2. I didn't say it made sense from a user perspective. I'm just speculating as to how it's that way and further suggesting that it's not really a bug, buty maybe an opportunity for improvement for the use experience. Random mode on an audio playback device isn't random at all. Probably why they started calling it "shuffle". When they started making MP3 players, they offered a random mode and it was truly random. But in the days of limited memory there was often few songs and sometimes a song would repeat. People complained that random mod was broken, but it wasn't. Sometimes when you roll the dice, you get a 6 twice in a row. THey then created a quasi-random mode that was random without repeat. Which isn't random. It wasn't intended to be that way, but technically it was what the consumers wanted. However the consumers didn't understand that what they wanted wasn't random. Anyway, it's just the way it worked out. There was a good reason why songs would repeat sometimes. I'm guessing someone at some point said "I want a modified date" and they implemented it. But the person who requested it didn't realize that the path is part of the macro data and changing it would change the modified date. It probably never crossed their minds back then. I.E. I dont' think it's a bug. There's nothing broken.
  3. I'm guessing it's by design. I.E. one modifies the macro to change the location and thus the modification date is changed. These aren't files in folders, they're entities in the data file. I'm guessing nothing is moved in the data structure, but a line in the macro data indicates where it is in the hierarchy. You change that line in the macro and the macro has changed. Not to say this couldn't be done differently, but I this is just my guess of how it works and why it acts differently than a file system.
  4. Many people don't realize you can comment in a command or add a line as a comment. It's in the list with the rest of the commands on the left. Macro Control > Comment.
  5. VM, Remote Desktop sessions and the like all shut down the GUI interface when not displayed. It simply will not work. Not for web pages or anything. Non GUI interacting macros will run fine. I used to use VNC which connects to the console of a desktop computer. I don't know if it will work with a VM.
  6. No. I like to separate too, so this was also a problem for me. I use a remark/comment. Technically not a blank line, but it works well.
  7. Variable Set Integer has a user input option.
  8. Could you type a space first then the numbers? Then a ShortKey macro I think would work. Have the macro delete the space after. My suggestion seems a little sloppy thought.
  9. You can do this using MEP's file and folder commands. Iteratively search down though all folders. Why don't you just search from the command prompt using the Directory command? It's super simple. from the root of the drive E.G."C:\" type "dir myfile.doc /s". The "s" switch searches subdirectories. Run it as an administrator in order to see files in sensitive areas. You can direct the output to a file if you like also. You could also use the External Script facility in MEP.
