What is a Macro Recorder?
Macro Recorder can record your mouse and keyboard actions you are performing on your Windows or Mac computer.
You can then playback the recorded procedure as often as you want or save the recording into a file for later use.
It works as easy as a tape recorder: Record, Stop, Playback.
You can manage your recordings in customizable tree structure in our productivity solution PhraseExpress and trigger them by text shortcuts or hotkey. PhraseExpress also enables you to share your Macro Recorder recordings with other users in your network.
How does Macro Recorder compare to Mouse Recorder?
Macro Recorder is the successor of Mouse Recorder and has been re-engineered from ground up with a new range of functions.
Development of Mouse Recorder has been discontinued as Macro Recorder provides all its features and many more. Due to the further development from a pure mouse recording tool to an automation solution, a renaming was necessary.
Macro Recorder is based on the same user interface as Mouse Recorder and includes all its features, but adds many new functions, such as labels, goto, repeat, etc.
Compatibility with PhraseExpress
- Mouse Recorder supports PhraseExpress up to version 13, but no later versions.
- Macro Recorder is compatible with PhraseExpress v14 for Windows and PhraseExpress v3 for Mac.
Supported Operating Systems
Mouse Recorder supported Microsoft Windows only. Macro Recorder is also compatible with Apple macOS.
Macro Recorder is included with the purchase of the PhraseExpress Enterprise Edition for Windows.
What, if a recorded program changes its window position or size?
Macro Recorder tries to restore the window to a position and size, allowing the macro playback reaching all clicked items in that program. Macro Recorder even recognizes changed monitor dimensions between recording and playback of a macro automation.
Can macro recordings be scheduled?
Macro Recorder does not include a built-in scheduler service but can utilize the "task-scheduler" built into Microsoft Windows in combination with our productivity solution PhraseExpress.
We believe, that you don't need another background program or service occupying extra memory and consuming CPU power while the Windows scheduler is running anyway. By using Windows scheduler, you have one central place to check out what is scheduled on your computer.
Is Macro Recorder spyware?
No, Macro Recorder does not have any "stealth mode" and is not designed to work as a spyware. You can recognize a recording by the Macro Recorder icon in the task/menu bar.
We do not endorse spying out others and will not provide such feature on request.
Is there a Linux version?
We carefully monitor the market but do not have any plan for a Linux version of our products at this time.
