###Demo of Macro
NOTICE: This macro/script is just an Example
- It is provided only for educational purposes, and may not be suitable for any specific purpose.
- It has had very limited testing.
- You need to test further before using in a production environment.
- It does not have extensive error checking/handling.
- It may not be complete. It is provided as an example to show you one approach to solving a problem.
HOW TO USE
- Type the TRIGGER while in a Word Document
tw(first char is OPT-SPACE).
- The Trigger prefix is:
⌥ t(OPT-SPACE, then "t")
- If you would prefer to just type "ALT-T", that would be "OPT-T" on the Mac
- This will produce the character "†"
- So, change the Trigger to:
- The next character typed determines the Action (Word Menu) to be executed:
- "w" -- Word Count
- "a" -- AutoCorrect Setup
- any other char -- Show Word Tools Menu
- Then you can start typing the menu item names

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK
- While I have given this limited testing, and to the best of my knowledge it will do no harm, I cannot guarantee it.

- Ask first
- Turn on the KM Debugger from the KM Status Menu, and step through the macro, making sure you understand what it is doing with each Action.
