Menu: Tools > Record Keys
Default Shortcut Key: Shift+F5
Macro function: none
Use the Record Keys command to begin recording a series of keystrokes for later playback with the Playback Keys command. This command provides a 'macro-by-example' or 'on-the-fly' keystroke recording facility. While recording is in process, all keystrokes entered from within the editor window will be stored. Mouse motion is not recorded per se, but if the mouse is used to select a command from the main menu, that command will be recorded just as though its shortcut key had been used instead. To stop recording, simply issue this command again: its name in the main menu changes to Stop Recording while recording is in process.
Mouse and/or keystroke interaction with popup dialogs is not stored in a key recording. If a confirmation dialog appears during keystroke recording, the response to that dialog is not recorded. The dialog will appear during playback, and will need to be dismissed manually at run-time.
