Macros store user defined action sequences. Recording several frequently needed steps into a macro often improves working efficiency. Macros are shared between projects: if you load a project which includes a macro section, all opened projects use the new macro set.
The Controls of the Macro Tab
Macro List The list of all named macros. The macro collection is loaded from the 'Macros' section of a project file. You can add a new macro to the list by recording one and renaming it appropriately. You can execute a macro by dragging it to a view window.
Key A field for defining a hotkey combination that executes the selected macro:
Record a macro and rename it to a unique name, or select an existing named macro from the list.
Select the geometric object which should activate a context sensitive macro. If the macro is not object specific, deselect all geometric objects.
Activate the 'Key' field and press the key combination you want to use for the macro.
Make sure that the appropriate macro is selected on the macro list above and press the 'Bind' button.
To use the new key binding at a later date, save the project with 'Macros' section.
Bind Creates a new hot key binding between the 'Key' field contents and the currently selected named macro.
Key Binding List The list of all macro key bindings. Use the popup menu to delete undesired bindings.
