The Macros Editor's interface is similar to most file-based software (such as Word or Excel) and you should therefore feel immediately comfortable in using it. Below are some of its specificities.


New Macro : To create a new macro use the FILE|new menu item.


Opening a Macro : There are many ways to open a macro :


Use the FILE|save menu item in the Macros Editor.

Use the RECENT menu in the Macros Editor to conveniently access the most recently used macros.

Use the Macros Sets Manager.

Use the Macro Search Dialog.


Note that when you are editing the Macros ScriptLine property, you can also open the selected macro using the Edit Macro button.


Saving a Macro : To save changes to a macro, use the FILE|save menu item. Note that you do not need to save macros explicitly; you will always be asked if you want to save changes when switching to another macro or closing the editor.


Duplicating a Macro : To make a copy of the currently displayed macro, use the FILE|save as menu item. You can also perform this operation from within the Macros Sets Manager.


Locating a Macro : Use the Macro Search Dialog.


Compiling a Macro : To see if the macro code you have written so far is syntactically correct, use the CTRL + F9 keyboard combination, or the CODE|compile menu item in the Macros Editor.
