  17. Fixed a bug where the 'Variable Set String: Get From Window Title' would always return 'M' when stepping through the macro.
  18. Made a change to add a small delay when launching macros from menus in order to give them time to clear and return focus to the previous window before launching the macro.
  19. When using Ctrl+Z to undo a delete of a disabled command, the command is restored as disabled.
  20. Made a change to the ShortKey file conversion so that it doesn't add the clipboard commands to the macro.
