Edit macro

Macro type:

The key that you press to invoke this macro.


What to send. This gets sent through the command processor, so it can consist of aliases, speedwalks or script commands.

Send action

What to do with the send text when you press the macro key.


The entire contents of the command window is replaced by the macro.

Send Now

The macro is immediately acted upon, however the command window contents are not changed.


The macro contents is inserted into the command window. You can then edit it if you wish.


To do more elaborate things (like expanding variables, running scripts) enter a nonsense word in the "send" box, and then make an alias to "catch" that word, and do the extra processing in the alias. One way of doing this is to use the Edit -> Generate Unique ID menu item to generate a unique word, like this:


This is unlikely to be something you would normally want to type into the MUD. Then make an alias to match on "381e051a828fb201b6914699" (or whatever word you choose) and make the alias do things like expand variables, call scripts, etc.
