Problems with Menu Selctions (Sort & Highlight)

Post by rcgordon » 2007-07-13 16:58:52

I have not manged to set a macro line for these menu items:

Sort Paragraphs:Ascending (A-Z)
I've tried both a dash and an en dash (option-hyphen), but neither works.

Format:Highlight:<ANY>

What's the secret?

Perhaps there should be a numeric index option for choosing menu items for macro use.

If you choose to use a menu path, you must use a full path, eg: the sorting menus must include "Edit". Either of these commands should do:

Code: Select all

Ascending (A-Z)
Edit:Sort Paragraphs:Ascending (A-Z)
Probably it would be good if we allowed for partial paths when menu differentiation is required but the full path is cumbersome.

I didn't have any trouble with the highlighters... try these:

Code: Select all

Format:Highlight:Yellow 
Format:Highlight:Blue
As for the suggestion about using menu indexes, that's no good, since menus can shift around as we add features.

Thanks. I just hadn't understood that it's either all or none as far as setting the menu path.
