Editor Menu Options
The three insert commands are the equivalents of the buttons found in the Script Editor. These options determine where the command is positioned in the macro script. Choose from one of the three options to be the program default.
Insert Command Before Selected - (Script Editor Only)
With this option selected, any commands added to the script are inserted above the highlighted line in the script.
Insert Command After Selected - (Script Editor Only)
With this option selected, any commands added to the script are inserted to the line below the highlighted line in the script.
Add Command to End of Script - (Script Editor Only)
With this option selected, any commands added to the script are inserted as the last line of the macro script.
Assume the macro script contains 10 lines and Insert Command Before Selected is assigned as the default. A new Text Type command needs to be inserted between lines 5 and 6. To do this, first highlight line number 6 in the script. Then expand the Keyboard category and double click on the Text Type command. Insert the text and click OK to save. The Text Type command is inserted before line 6 in the macro script.
Now, suppose the command needs to be inserted at the end of the script. The alternate method would be to expand the Keyboard category and highlight the Text Type command. Click on the Add Command to End of Script button to open the Text Type command. Insert the text and save. The button overrides the default and places the Text Type command at the end of the script.
The Script Editor allows for the display of all commands, code snippets or a list of the most frequently used macro commands for quicker macro creation.
Use this Customize Favorites option to create a favorites list. Select the command and click on the insert button to move it to the Favorites column. Click on the Folder icon to insert a folder in the Favorites field. The directional buttons on the right of the window allow for positioning the command in the Favorites list. When finished, click on the OK button to save.
Click on the drop down menu in the Script Editor to display the Favorite Commands.
