Submitted for your review, comment, and revision, the following Wiki article has been updated:
###Variables (in the Manual Segment)
@peternlewis, this page conflicts with: Keyboard Maestro Variables (in the main Wiki segment). They need to be merged into one page ASAP to avoid conflicts and misinformation. If you’d like, I can do this. Just let me know which page should be the master.
- ADD Scope Table
- Please review this carefully, and fix as needed.
- I wrote what I understand, but I’m still not completely clear on all aspects of Local and Instance variables
- ADD Sections.
There appears to be an error in this version of the Wiki Variables page:
Keyboard Maestro has four types of variables, distinguished based on their name.
Password Variables — names start or end with “Password” or “PW”.
Local Variables — names start or end with “Local ” or “𝕃”.
Instance Variables — names start or end with “Instance ” or “𝕀”.
Variables — All other variables.
I believe this is incorrect:
names start or end with “Local ”
I tried testing it, and the Variable appeared in Preferences, but, there may be a bug there:
I'm running Keyboard Maestro 8.0.1 (8.0.1) on macOS 10.11.6.
Local Variables Test #2
Somethings wrong with the Preferences Window.
MACRO: Local Variable KM 8.0.1 @Test
Local Variable KM8 @Test.kmmacros (2.6 KB)
I have merged the two into the manual.
Variables can never have spaces at the start or end, and it shouldn’t matter if they do, so any exception to that is a bug.
Looks good. Thanks for the quick response.
