Thanks for helping out on maintaining the KM Wiki!
Please make sure that whenever you make an edit, that you create a new topic in the
Wiki forum category so that we all know about it, and provide others with the opportunity to review.
Your script is good, but could result in misleading results. Whenever you get a KM Variable, you always need to test to make sure it has a value. So, I updated your script with a test and error command:
tell application "Keyboard Maestro Engine"
set macroGroup to getvariable "macroGroup"
if (macroGroup = "") then error "[ERROR]" & linefeed & "Invalid Macro Group Name. KM Variable \"" & "macroGroup" & "\" was empty or undefined."
tell application "Keyboard Maestro" -- Editor
if exists macro group macroGroup then
Also, please make sure you have tested and validated the exact script that you post. I just had to remove another script because it would not even compile.
Your description of your changes was good, but it would be helpful (but not required) if you could follow this format in the future. If all Wiki editors will follow the same format, it will make it easier for all of us to quickly read/understand the changes.
