Better Macros documentation?

Hey guys,

I was hoping to whip up a couple macros this morning to help myself out a bit and possibly just learn something new, but I have to admit that I am baffled by even the most basic task in the Macros editor.

I am wondering if there is a full list of commands anywhere?
I checked out the documentation here: ... tle=Macros

But it doesn't give much info aside from the 9 commands laid out at the top...

For example, it says under "Basics" that you can do Cut/Copy/Paste operations, but I cannot for the life of me figure out to actually make it process any of those commands.

Even just trying to write a macro that does nothing else than cut the selected text is yielding no results. I tried:

,and nothing works. I also tried a number of the commands under "Selection" and couldn't get anything to work there either. I would be happy to help touch up the documentation to be more clear and specific if I could just find a list of what the commands actually are. I also checked out MainForm.cs as the notes said to do, but I couldn't find anything helpful (it's an incredibly long document). Is there any actual reference to what the full syntax for Macro editing is supposed to be?

If you wish to use these commands you need to call them like this: ScintillaCommand|Cut

I added a small description to the docs how to use these basic Scintilla control commands.

Beautiful, thank you very much for that! That single line in the documentation makes a world of difference.

Much appreciated!

Thank you! I was having a similar problem as I am new to creating macros. I was trying to make simple macros like copy, cut and paste.
