  5. Do you wish to capture keystrokes? <Yes>
  6. Do you wish to capture the mouse movements and clicks? <Yes> <Screen> <Capture all mouse movements>
  7. Do you wish the macro to play back <Choose your speed> Note: The macro may not be able to keep up with speedier processes when the system is slow or if the macros shifts between screens.
  8. The following is a list of all of the window titles. <ALEPH…etc.> Note: If “ALEPH…(etc.) does not display, be sure the ALEPH window is open and not minimized before beginning creation of the macro.
  9. Choose an activation for the macro. <Hotkey>

  17. When recording is done, the program returns you to your macro list. (I’m not sure if you need to press Ctrl S to save but I do just in case.)
  18. To test the macro, place your cursor at the starting point and play. VIOLA!
