Use Case

  • You have a macro that you have either deleted, or made major changes to, and it is no longer working as it was before.
  • You want to restore a macro in its entirety from a previous version.
  • You want to obtain Actions from a Prior Version of a Macro

All of the above is fairly easy to do, once you know how. This video tutorial will show you how.
