My macro plays out of sequence

This is a timing issue. Macro Express is able to send keystrokes faster than the application you are running can process them.

For example, you may have a keystroke that causes a new window to pop up and the next keystroke is to perform a command in this new window. It’s possible that the new window may not be ready to receive the keystroke when it is sent. The solution is to place a short delay (1/2 a second or so) right after the keystroke that invokes the new window or use the Wait for Window command.

If text playback is skipping characters, slow down text playback or paste through the clipboard.
