Description Michael Wogan 2021-11-27 15:59:14 UTC
Problems with this chapter: Repetitive. Running a Macro, p.354 is repeated on p 360 and p. 365. Needs better organization. The section on Viewing and Editing Macros, starting on p. 355 (BASIC code) is not helpful for most readers - belongs at the end. Macro Recorder Failures, on p. 361, did not help me at all when my macro failed. 

Actual Results:
Confusing to the reader.

Expected Results:
Expected help constructing, naming, saving, editing, binding to shortcut, and correcting errors.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Better organization, better editing & checking, more inclusive information, fewer external links required, more detail and more accurate detail.
