    I tried recording a macro to sort a selection by doing
    Narrowing on
    Sort a-z
    Narrowing off

    but it merely recorded mouse positions.

    What’s the API calls for this?

    thanks

    Hello Derek,

    Not all operations are recorded automatically. Please see Help for macro methods. Here is an example:

    Narrowing on:
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4457);

    Narrowing off:
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4458);
    http://www.emeditor.com/help/cmd/edit/narrowing_off.htm

    Sort A to Z:
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4477);

    That’s great.

    I have created a macro

    //narrowing on
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4457);
    //sort A-Z
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4477);
    //narrowing off
    editor.ExecuteCommandByID(4458);

    and added it to one of the menus but it displays the name of the macro file – is there a way for it to display “Sort selection” rather than “sortselection.jsee”

    thanks

    Hello Derek,

    When you add a macro to a menu, there is a text box called “Name” on the Menu Properties. You can enter whatever name you want to be appeared in the menu.
