Editing macros

Macro Recorder recordings consist of individual action steps in chronological order, that can be edited in the main program window.

Inserting actions

Video tutorial

To insert an action:
  1. In the list of actions, highlight an existing action (if any) under which you want to insert a new action.
    • Click the icon of the desired action in the "Add action" section in the main menu (tab "Edit Macro").
    • Right-click in the action list and select the desired action from the context menu. This menu also provides access to additional actions, such as Hotkey, Goto, Focus and Repeat, which are not available in the main menu.
    • Press the hotkey associated to an action, e.g. the w key for a wait action or the c key for a mouse click.
  2. Configure the action parameters.

The column "label" allows you to enter a short jump marker, that can be addressed by the goto, repeat or pixel color detection action.

If you click any mouse action, the actual mouse path or click position is shown as an overlay on your desktop until you move to the next item or if you hover away from the selected action.
