ACT! Macros

We can help you save hours in keystrokes, by creating Custom Macros.  You can use two major methods

1. The Record Macro feature included with ACT!

2. Aldo's Macro Recorder software


ACT! Macros
Using ACT's own internal Macro Feature

You can download these Macros in to your ACT\Macro folder.  Some have an ICO icon file to help you create a convenient Tool Bar button for one click operation.

To select Other Documents from the Write menu

WriteOtherDocument.mpr
WriteOtherDocument.ico

To Delete Records deleted by Remote Users through Synchronization

DeleteRecordsByRemoteUsers.mpr

To select File Synchronize, then Synchronize in one click

Aldo's Macro Recorder
Using the add on software utility

You can download this very helpful utility from
http://www.aldostools.com/macro.html

There are some Macros that ACT!'s Feature cannot do.  So this will help fill in the gap.  Record and play any keystroke combination in ANY Windows software, or even between software!

$19.99 to set up macros

Automate your repetitive installation of custom menus for Queries, Write, and Reports on each workstation.

Assist in the customization of User Defined Fields.  You usually have to do a lot of tedious clicking to go the next field, then click back to the Field Name and/or Width, then click on to the next field (or tab 11 times).  This can all be done with a simple tap of the F12 key (or key you customize.)


Samples:

To assist in entering the field names

{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Tab}{Down}{Tab}{End}
