User Submitted Macro

What it does

This macro set is my current use of Macro Express to pop timers for doctor appts, blood donation, streamed radio shows, home maintenance, background program execution, webcam capture on a fixed interval, that is to say, any event for which I can schedule the time. Several of the timers pop TextPad on timers.txt and search for a string in that file. Use your favorite text editor and adjust the search command. I offer these as examples, make your own set.

To install

Download the macro file umtimers.mex and save it to your hard drive where you store your macro file(s). Import the macros into your existing macro file by clicking File, Import, Import Macros.

To use

In Macro Express – Macro Explorer, click File/Open Macro File, browse, select and open the Timers.mex file. Explore these macros and modify them to your own uses.

How it works

All these macros are activated by Schedule, some daily, some weekly, some on occasion.
