Security

 

Use this option to password protect a macro before it can be edited, played back or both. From the Macro Explorer, click on the Edit Macro icon to open the Script Editor. Or double click on a defined macro in the list of macros to open the Script Editor. Then click on the Security tab to edit the security settings. Three security options are available.

 

 

Script Editor > Security Tab

 

 

Do Not Password Protect this Macro

This is the default setting. No password is required to view, edit or run the macro.

 

 

Use a Single Password to Protect this Macro

Select this option and click on the Change button to create a password. With the password information defined, the password must be entered before viewing or editing the contents of the macro in the Script Editor. This same password is also required before running the macro.

 

 

Use Separate Passwords for Editing and Running This Macro

Select this option to create one password to edit the macro and another password to run the macro. Or use a password for either the Edit or Run functions and not use a password for the other.

 

Edit Password

Highlight Edit Password and click on the Change button to set up a password. With the password information defined, the password must be entered before viewing the contents of the macro in the Script Editor. This is one way to prevent others from viewing the macros or being able to alter them.

 

Run Password

Highlight Run Password and click on the Change button to set up a password. With this password information defined, the password must be entered before the macro runs.

 

 

Note: Password protect the entire macro file from viewing or editing. Also prevent Macro Express from playing back any macros until a proper password has been entered.
