The Record Instant Macro command in the Macros menu records a macro just like Macros|Record Macro does. The only difference is that EditPad Pro doesn’t ask you for a name and keyboard shortcut for the macro. The only way to play back the instant macro is with Macros|Play Instant Macro.
Use instant macros when you want to quickly record and play back a group of keystrokes a few times. Only one instant macro is preserved at a time. Recording a new instant macro deletes the previous instant macro without warning. The instant macro is not preserved when you close and restart EditPad Pro. The only way to preserve an instant macro is to use Keep Instant Macro to add it to the Macros menu.
