I have been an avid supporter of lazy macros for a long time , I even have a few of my own here and so far there hasnt been a lot of support via the addon community until now.
I have been hard at work with my friend and addon author Deepac over the last few months tweaking his already awesome addon Macro Tool Kit. It is a replacement in every possible way for Super Duper Macro.
It color codes your macros so you know the syntax is correct.
It will shorten them to as few characters as possible.
It will show you suggestions , it has built in conditionals , so if you looking to add something but dont know the command you can get it from a drop down.
***It can extend and unextend macros past the 255 limit.***
It has keybind only macros for double the macro space.
It will save your macros across you entire account , want to log on a new server and not have to type out the macros again, go to the account wide macro screen and copy from any toon on your account via drop down.
Plus many more you can find it here
A WARNING THOUGH BEFORE USE , backup and save any macros you have already made , the way in which addons have to use to break the 255 limit makes them un-compatible , with that being said you will have to remake your addons in Macro Tool Kit. IF you have any questions you can shoot me a tell on boulderfist US Horde Side on Dohram , or ask any member of Pacis Nex to get ahold of me, or of here. and any improvements or suggestions leave on curse for deepac to review.LutechiHigh Warlord

Thanks Dohram, I have been using it for a while and so far I like it.
I have in plans to upload a file with the macros, but I will try to contact the author of this addon to simplify the uploading macro task with a plugin rather than doing it manually.DohramWarlord

I strongly suggest backing up your macros prior to using Macro Toolkit. Although it looks harmless, it has rendered a couple of my macros useless.DeepacConqueror

If you could provide more detail I will look into the problem. Macro Toolkit should have no impact on the functionality of existing macros unless they were either created using another addon, or there is an issue I’m unaware of with the shortening algorithm for example.

This was my original macro:
/target Lao Softfoot
/run SetRaidTarget(“target”, 4)
After you run it through, it long longer works.DeepacConqueror

What do you mean by “run it through”?
I’ve just entered this and also tried both extending and shortening and it appears to function correctly. What am I missing?

Thanks Dohram for the update, I have sent a PM to Deepac already.SabbathScoutFebruary 18, 2013 at 8:16 amPost count: 6
What I meant by “run it through”
Ex: When you swipe a Credit Card…you run it through the machine so it can read the strip
Credit Card = Macro Machine=Macro Toolkit Add-on
As rule of thumb, when replacing or working on files you’re going to fix (ex: Speeches, work reports, OS’s for PC’s and in this case macro’s) it is wise to backup your work in case power goes out, you cat steps on you keyboard, your dog kicks out the power-cord.
I used the add-on a few months back and for the most part it did it’s job. But as I have stated before, back-up your macros prior to use. I will DL this program again and try to duplicate the errors I had.
