I would like to set a KM Variable to the status of a Macro.
But I don’t see either a Token nor a Function that will provide this.
I can test for the status in a IF/THEN Action, using this condition:
Macro or Macro Group Condition
The Macro or Macro Group Condition determines if a specified macro or macro group is:
So, the only way I can find is to use a Switch Action with this Condition.
Surely there is a better way?
That could be very useful.
1) I want to understand:
Why don’t you want to use “Condition” to set your own variable?
What is wrong with doing that?
2) Whether a built-in token/function or a custom variable, how do plan to you use it?
I’m interested in this idea for use in building palettes.
Often I’m confused which groups are active and which are not.
A condition indicator would help a lot.
What are other ways you would use macro status?
I’m going to start experimenting with this right now.
Is this what you
don't want to do?
(This test just displays, but could set a custom variable.)

@Mark, great questions.
Initially, it seemed like a "MacroStatus" token would be easier to use.
That's when I posted this topic/question.
I am using the "Condition" in an IF/THEN Action, which I would also want to do with a variable set to the "MacroStatus" token. So, really, little to be gained by having a having a "MacroStatus" token, other than simply reporting the status.
I am using it to set the message and sound when I toggle the enabled status.
