Macro Basics

A macro in computer science is a rule or pattern that specifies how a certain input sequence should be mapped to a replacement output sequence according to a defined procedure.

Macros in Ynote Classic

Ynote Classic supports macro recording and playback. Macros automate tasks and thus improve productivity. Ynote Macros are saved in the User\Macros Directory. You can distribute useful macros by creating a Ynote Package and sharing it.

Recording/Stop Recorded Macro

Macro recording can be started or stopped(if recording)using the Macros->Start Recording/Stop Recording command or pressing Ctrl + M key. It can also be started using the "Macros:Record" command in the Commander.

The Current Recorded macro can be executed using the Macros->Execute Current Recorded macro command or pressing Ctrl + E.

Executing Macros

Macros can be executed using the Macros->Macros->{macro.ymc} Macro file or the shortcut assigned to it. An easier approach to this is through the commander. Using the "Macro:{macroName}" command.
