Feature idea:

Hi All,

I just wanted to throw out a couple of ideas, so folks could comment on them...

 

About two-thirds of the macros I make are actually 'Text Type' shortkeys. I think it would be great if I could just click in the Macro Script window and start typing and MacExp would launch the Text Type entry dialog and automatically enter my text into it.

 

Another idea is that if I click in the window and type "//" then some text, MacExp would launch the Remarks dialog.

 

Does that make sense? Thanks. -steve

Great ideas!

 

I wish everytime you started creating a new macro and opened the scripting editor that it would already have one empty remark already entered. I always like to add a few comments up top, and with at least one comment already appearing would make it easy to add more comments (duplicate).

 

At the very least, make this an option since all my macros have at least one line of remarks.

One option is to create your text type macros using the Direct Editor....

 

Cool, I didn't realize that--thanks :lol:

Incidently, I was thinking about the issue of automating the entry of Remarks....

If I only had some tool that could be used to automate repetitive tasks ... <_<

Golly gosh geewiz :o I should use MacroExpress !!! ;)

 

<TEXTTYPE:<TAB><TAB>mac<ENTER>><WAITPB><MSD:100><TEXTTYPE:rem><MSD:100><TEXTTYPE:<ENTER>>

 

I scoped it for "MACEDIT.exe only" and made it activate with the shortkey "//". CLick in the Script Editorwindow, then active it.

It sortof works. I must say though, I'm not sure about the safety of using a macro to automate another macro. What next? If I find myself making lots of macros to automate the creation of other macros, will I then attempt to automate those "macro-creating" macros? And what if I succeed at this? Will I eventually have macros that automate the creation of other macros used to create them in the first place? Will it be like that famous MC Estcher lithograph of the two hands drawing each other?

 

Well, I'll give it a try... If the Universe suddenly implodes, you'll know why :P
