How may we assist you?
Can macro recordings be scheduled?
Macro Recorder 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.
Program window is distorted
This is a known issue on macOS 10.13. "High Sierra" caused by components used by Macro Recorder. Official system requirement for Macro Recorder is macOS 10.14 (Mojave). We filed a bug fix to the provider and hope for a fix.
As a work around, please consider updating your Mac to the latest macOS version.
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.
What is included in the purchase?
Your purchase includes the right to use the software, as well as updates and upgrades, which we publish within the maintenance period you have chosen.
A special feature of our offer is that it also includes all new major versions with new functions.
Is maintenance included in the license?
Yes, a license always includes maintenance for the selected maintenance term.
This ensures that you can always use the latest software. You cannot purchase a license without maintenance.
However, if maintenance is expired for your license, you can renew maintenance at discount.
Search for multiple different text/images
Yes, this is no problem. Just let Macro Recorder loop through multiple "Find text" or "Find image" actions that branch to the desired macro sections and make sure to set the wait time to zero for each Find text/image action.
When does the maintenance term start?
The maintenance term starts with the month of license key delivery.
License keys are dynamically generated at the time of purchase. The end of maintenance is branded into the license key and can be read that out from the first set of 4-digits, e.g. "0421" means April, 2021.
Can a license be transferred?
Yes, you can release a license association from a user, a computer or a USB stick at any time to use it on another device (or for another user).
Can licenses be cotermed?
Yes, we would be happy to coterm the maintenance term of your existing licenses with a new purchase.
