Description Michael Meeks 2013-05-07 10:41:02 UTC
The built-in Macro recording functionality is really unreliable, buggy and awful. The feature is marked 'experimental' and disabled by default because of this.

Fixing it properly is a huge chunk of work; nevertheless people seem to want this feature and file bugs.

I'd like to clean those up by marking them duplicates of this bug, so we at least have those requests & issues archived.

Current behavior
When I stop recording I must save the recording as some name I must enter. If I want to replay the macro I must navigate to and select the macro I just created. 

Requested behavior:
When I 'stop recording' I can immediately replay the macro through some key or click. 

If I later want to save this macro I can give it a name and location in the macro tree. 

'Stop recording' will assign a temporary name and link it to the 'Replay' event. 'Start recording' discards, without warning, any previous record.
