Quick Wizards

 

The Quick Wizards are a convenient way to step through the macro creation process. The sequence is essentially the same for each of the wizards and are basically self explanatory. We'll briefly discuss the basic steps of the wizard.

 

 

Wizard Steps
 

1.Select the category or type of macro to create and then click on the Next button.

2.The second step prompts to select the specific type of macro to create. Click Next to advance.

3.A window opens listing the functions of the wizard selected as well as giving some examples of macros that may be created with this wizard. Click Next to advance to the next screen.

4.Depending on the wizard selected, a prompt appears asking what to do with the macro or instructions are provided to begin building the macro. Input the necessary information and click next to proceed.

5.After entering the necessary information for the macro, the next step is to select a method for executing the macro - hot key, timed macro, etc. Select an activation method and click Next.

6.Define if the macro should play back in all programs, a single program or only in a specific window. Make a choice and click Next to proceed.

7.Give the macro a nickname and optionally assign an icon with the macro.  

8.Click Finish and the macro is complete.

 

These are the basic steps of the Wizard. Depending on the wizard selected there may be several additional steps, each of which is self explanatory. Each step has a Cancel button to exit the Wizard at any time. Each step includes a Back button to backtrack and make any changes needed.

 

The Wizards have been divided into categories based on their functionality. Each of the links below lead to brief explanations of each of the wizards and some of the types of macros that can be created. The Tutorial section includes an example of creating a macro with the Wizard.

Note: The Quick Wizards are handy for less complicated macros. If planning to use If / Then logic, variables or other advanced features, the macro will need to be created with the Script Editor.
