How can I be prompted to select a folder during macro playback?

How can I be prompted during macro playback to select the folder to be used in the Repeat with Folder command?

In the Variable Set String commands, use the Set Value to Folder Name (Prompt) option. This will open an explorer like window where you can navigate to the folder you want. It will save the folder to a text string variable.

In the Repeat with Folder command enter %T[1]% (if you selected T[1] as your variable) in the Folder field.

Each time you run the macro, you will be prompted for a folder. Select the folder and press OK. The Repeat with Folder command will cycle through the folder you selected.
