Supplied Macros

VEDIT has an extensive macro programming language. Many useful macros are supplied with VEDIT and can be used without understanding their internal workings.

The supplied macros below are easy to use and are fully documented in the VEDIT User's Manual. These macros can also be set up to automatically execute when VEDIT is invoked.

Loading/Executing Macros in VEDIT

To run a macro from VEDIT:

  1. From the toolbar choose {MISC, Load/execute macro} or Ctrl-F7.
  2. A "Load/execute" dialog box will appear containing a list of macros. Similar to other {File, Open} dialog boxes, select the macro you wish run.

{USER} Menu and Other Macros

VEDIT comes with a library of additional "keystroke macros" that can be built into the editor and assigned to a "hot-key".

A set of custom editing functions can be added to the main menu; they appear in the special {USER} menu.  The default {USER} menu includes some popular functions from KEY-MAC.LIB.  As with all menu functions, the custom functions can have hot-keys assigned to them.

The editing functions in the {USER} menu are implemented using the VEDIT PLUS macro language.  Although VEDIT PLUS is needed to fully realize its potential, VEDIT users can modify existing functions or add new ones by copying macros from KEY-MAC.LIB.
