Use this option to set the default file locations for a number of files used by Macro Express. Descriptions of the files are provided below.
Macro Express Explorer > Options > Preferences > File System > File Paths
Email Address Book
This specifies the path and name of the file that holds any email addresses to be stored. This option is provided so that network users can each have their own individual list of email addresses. If email addresses are common to all users, simply point each user to the same file.
Sent Email Log
The Sent Email Log field displays the path and name of the file that logs the mails sent via Macro Express. The email information will only be saved to this file if the Email Logging option has been set. Start a new log file at any time by changing the file name.
Default Macro Log folder
This specifies the path and name of the file that holds the error logs created when using the Log Errors command. Start a new log file anytime by changing the file name. This option is provided so that network users can each have their own individual list of error messages. If error messages are common to all users, simply point each user to the same file.
Crash Report folder
This specifies the path and folder where crash reports are saved. Crash reports are generated by an unexpected closing of the program. The details of the problem are saved to a file that begins with 'error' and ends with '.TX' in the folder specified here. The default path is the folder where the Macro Express program is installed.
Temporary Capture File
Use the System Macro - Ctrl + Alt + Shift + B to capture a temporary macro. The temporary macro is stored in the file located in the path defined in this field.
External Scripts Temporary folder
Macro Express allows for the creation of External Scripts in JScript, VBScript or HTA/HTML. When the macro plays back the contents of an External Script, the script is copied from the macro and temporarily saved to a file in the folder location selected. The macro reads the contents of the file and plays them back. When the macro is finished the temporary file is deleted.
Instead of displaying all of the commands available in the Script Editor, Macro Express includes an option to create a favorites list, making it easier to find the most frequently used commands. From the Script Editor menu click on Options > Customize Favorites to assign the favorites. The information is stored in the file listed in this file path.
Use the Code Snippets function to create snippets of a macro script, such as routines for use in multiple macros. Save the code snippet to later insert into a macro at any time. Select Code Snippets from the drop down list as shown below to view, create or insert snippets. The code snippet information is stored in this file path.
Click on the Open button to open the folder and view the contents associated with the file path selected.
