Add Action to Macros in Bulk

Hi, I want to take a group of simple text expansion macros and add the same action to each (moving cursor to the start of the replaced text). Is there a way to select all the relevant macros and apply that change in bulk? Tried to highlight a group and then insert an action via the edit menu but those commands aren't active.

Hey @sottovoce,

Keyboard Maestro doesn't support bulk editing.

The job can be done, but it requires AppleScript and is a bit complicated.

Usually when I do this sort of thing I build a Keyboard Maestro macro to do the job.

It's a bit clunky, but it's waay faster than doing things by hand if there are very many macros to edit.

Thank you for the suggestion. For now, a macro sounds like the easiest way to do this.
