Disabled Macros Keep Running?

I must be missing something obvious here. I have a macro group that is only enabled when a specific application is running. One of the macros in that group ran in an endless loop, so I simply quit the application. But the macro kept running, wreaking havoc across my machine—I had to force a restart. What am I missing? Thank you.

When a macro starts it basically runs in its own new process. No checks for enabled / disabled happen during the macro run, only at the beginning of the macro run.

An endless loop can probably be reworked to something that doesn’t require an endless loop.

I’d also recommend having a cancel all macro. E.g. Cancel / Kill All Running Macros - #5 by DanThomas
