Queen's University has purchased a license which will enable us to use the program Macro Express to help automate certain tasks in conjunction to our new Library Management System.
This program has numerous advantages, including the fact that macros can be imported for use from one computer to another, and that other libraries are also using this program in conjunction with Voyager. As time goes on, we will gradually expand our use of the program to take advantage of its capabilities.
The first time you open Macro Express on your machine, you will see the following dialog box, asking if you would like to include sample macros in your installation.
Unless you really want to play around with macros, say No. (If you would like to see the samples, see Doreen Rutherford. They turn out to be a lot of clutter on the Editor Screen.)
Next you get a series of Set Up screens:
Once you have completed Set Up, you can check the box for Do not show this on program startup. Or you can click on Cancel if you want to keep the options open but don't want to look at them now.
Clicking on Next brings you to:
Continue clicking on Next.
Unless advised otherwise, accept the suggested settings on the next few screens.
The last screen offers to create some sample macros for you. Try one or two of these, if you wish. The first and third may be useful to keep.
This is the end of Set Up. See Macro Editor Screen for more about Macro Express.
