Macro Express v has been released. This release includes many enhancements and bug fixes.
  • The Text Type command has been improved to make typing text more reliable.
  • It is now possible to set the starting folder used by the 'Variable Set String Prompt for a foldername' command by setting the destination variable to the starting folder.
  • Improved matching window titles when using wildcards in the Window Activate and other similar commands.
  • Added the option 'Delete temporary external script file'. Turn this off to aid in debugging by keeping the temporary script file created when the External Script command runs.
  • Updated samples.mex to add Welcome to Macro Express dialog, add a macro to Disable or Enable the Menu of Sample Macros and other improvements.
  • Fixed a problem that occurred where if a macro file was temporarily unavailable when Macro Express Pro Explorer was loaded, a new file with 0 bytes was created.
  • Fixed a problem that caused the preferences and the list of macro files to be loaded to be corrupted after certain types of crashes.
  • Fixed an issue where the program would not completely shut down when certain types of crashes occurred. When this happened the only way to completely close the program was via Task Manager.
  • Fixed a problem that would occur if a timed Text Box Display command was automatically closed while a macro error dialog was displayed.
  • Attempting to drag a macro to the System Category will no longer cause a crash.
  • Fixed a crash that would occur if the keys were pressed when the Code Snippets were displayed.
