-====== Creating Connexion Macros ====== 
- 
-There are two ways to create your own personal macros in Connexion - via Edit and via Record. ​ Edit requires you to know the macro code or at least have a copy of the desired code; Record allows to '​record'​ the macro as you type in Connexion. 
- 
-**Using Edit** 
- 
-  * Open Connexion 
-  * Go to Tools -> Macros -> Manage 
-  * Highlight the Cataloging directory in the left hand column. If you do not have this directory, contact Systems and ask them to add it.  
-  * Click on New Macro 
-  * Enter description of macro in pop-up box (i.e., Enters 910 field) 
-  * Look for highlighted 'New Macro' in white box in left hand column. Give it a name. (i.e., 910_field). Do not use spaces. 
-  * Click on Edit. This will pop up a new window. 
-  * Enter code between Sub Main and End Sub (see R:Connexion Macros for a few we have available). The code is space-sensitive so it may take a few trials and errors to get it right. 
-  * Save. 
- 
- 
- 
-**Using Record** 
- 
-  * Open Connexion 
-  * Open a generic workform 
-  * Position your cursor where you want the macro to begin - i.e., Field number block, field text block  
-  * Go to Tools -> Macros -> Manage 
-  * Click on Record 
-  * Input a name for and a description of the macro 
-  * Begin typing the macro information. When done .. 
-  * Click on the red-square Stop button (upper left corner of Connexion) 
- 
-**Setting a Macro Key** 
- 
-  * Go back to Tools -> Keymaps 
-  * Highlight your macro in the left-hand column 
-  * Select the function key/combo you want. Press key(s). 
-  * Click on Assign 
-  * Test!
