KM Editor enhancement request for Execute Macro

I humbly suggest adding a few extra words to the title of the Execute Macro that show the parameters being passed. (I did not see this idea on the forums.) Without this feature I have to keep the action at full size so I can read the parameters that I pass. Here's a contrived screenshot showing what it SHOULD look like:

Doing so would be completely consistent with other actions like the following which include the data in the header: (allowing me to reduce the action's size and still see all its data:)

Minimized it is still completely readable:

But a minimized Execute Macro action with a parameter is missing all its parameter data:

While I'm at it, there should also be a visible flag to indicate that an action has non-default values for its timeout. Even if it's just a single icon indicating something is there. Personally I'd rather see one icon for each of the timeout settings. And the default should also be settable in the KM Preferences window.

If an action has a timeout, the hands of the clock show in the gear icon.

If an action has a non-default timeout (ie, one you have changed from the default), then the hands show 4.5 O'clock instead of 3 O'clock.

Oh thanks. I did look at those hands and the colour of the gear and was wondering what they indicated, but was unable to come up with a definitive conclusion. Thanks.

Done for the next version.


I just downloaded 8.1 and it seems to be there. Thanks! This will help me a lot.
