Macro History

Hi Forum,

I'm sure it exists but where can I find the list that shows the 'executed macros history'?


The only place I know of is the KM Engine log file.
Help > Open Logs Folder

But there is a lot of "junk", er a other stuff in the log as well.

Best to export the last 100 lines or so to an app like BBEdit, and filter on "Execute macro"
Use the BBEdit Find tool with this Grep (Regex):
^.+Execute macro.+
and click on "Extract"

Here is a simple macro to do just that, except that after the results are in BBEdit, you need to do the filter.

Requires BBEdit's command-line tools to be installed.

MACRO:   Export KM Engine Log to BBEdit

~~~ VER: 1.0    2019-09-05 ~~~
Requires: KM 8.2.4+   macOS 10.11 (El Capitan)+
(Macro was written & tested using KM 9.0+ on macOS 10.14.5 (Mojave))

Nice, thanks.

You know, that's what I love about the KM-culture.

If there's no solution, we'll create a macro to get it done.
