Keyboard Macros

Index of All Documentation » Wing Pro Reference Manual » Source Code Editor »

Start Macro Record in the Edit menu starts the definition of a new keyboard macro. Once macro recording is started, any keystroke or editor command is recorded as part of that macro, until macro recording is stopped with Stop Macro Record in the Edit menu. Most commands may be included in macros, as well as all character insertions and deletions.

Using the operations under Mini-search in the Edit menu combined with cursor movements and edits allows for the creation of macros that can be applied repeatedly to code with Execute Macro in the Edit menu.

Keyboard macros are also supported by the native bindings emulated by keyboard personalities like Emacs, VI/Vim, Visual Studio, and Brief.
