Run macro in variable and delays


Recommended Posts

If I have these 2 commands in a macro:

Text Box Display: Select a Server (Timed floating box or end of macro for 5 seconds)
Delay: 5 seconds

then the macro displays the message for up to 5 seconds and continues.

 

However, if I put these 2 commands into a variable (using the Direct Editor and expanding all \ to \\), the text box displays more-or-less as expected (it actually needs more height when run from a variable), but does not close itself after 5 seconds.

 

???

I was thinking that maybe you just needed to have the DE script placed into separate variables for each command line, but upon testing it, I was unable to get the Text Box to go away taking that route, either.

 

I'm as confused as you are. Possibly more so.
