Read "Macro Nickname" into a variable


Recommended Posts

Hello. I need to track macro usuage and without editing every macro, I could somehow read the "macro nickname" when a macro is run.

 

Goal is to add a line into each macro reading its nickname and add to a variable that I will append to a text file.

 

Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

You could turn on "Log All Errors" on the Misc tab for the Macros you want to track or you use "Log All Errors" under Preferences, Playback, Misc.

 

This would record a brief message in a text file something like this

 

11/30/2012 10:05 AM: Macro Started (MACRO NAME)
11/30/2012 10:05 AM: Macro Completed (MACRO NAME)

 

12/31/2012 10:05 AM: Macro Started (MACRO NAME)
12/31/2012 10:05 AM: Macro Completed (MACRO NAME)

 

Would you then have to process these file(s) using a loop
