###Use Case

###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.


  1. Type the TRIGGER while in a Word Document
  • Example: tw (first char is OPT-SPACE).
  1. 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: †[ \w]
  1. 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


  • Carefully review the Release Notes and the Macro Actions
    • Make sure you understand what the Macro will do.
    • You are responsible for running the Macro, not me. :wink:
  • Change the TRIGGER if desired.
    • Current Trigger: OPT-SPACEt[any letter, number, or SPACE]
    • Example: tw
    • The last character typed determines the Action to be taken.
    • See the SWITCH Action below
  • Move this macro to a Macro Group that is only Active when you need this Macro.
  • ENABLE this Macro.
    • ALL Actions that are shown in the magenta color


  • While I have given this limited testing, and to the best of my knowledge it will do no harm, I cannot guarantee it.
  • If you have any doubts or questions:
    • 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.
