The default keystroke for both start & stop recording a
keystroke macro is "Alt-Shift-S". I can change the
start recording action to "F7" OK, but when I try to
also assign it to stop recording syn hangs. I am using
V3.0.0.2.

Great editor BTW!

    The keyboard assignments have changed in CVS and assigning
    the same key stroke to two separate actions (actMacroRecord
    and actMacroRecordStop) is no longer possible.

    Should this be allowed, or should a new action
    (actMacroRecordToggle?) be created that would allow the same
    keystroke to be used to turn record on and off. Opinions?

    I can only say, that it is very comfortable to have one
    shortcut for Start/Stop macro recording - one less to
    remember :-) actMacroRecordToggle sounds good for me... And
    it can replace other two, IMHO.

    Well, that's two votes for actMacroRecordToggle. I'll see
    about switching to actMacroRecordToggle on the default
    Action pallet also.

    Probably the actMacroRecord and actMacroRecordStop should be
    left for backwards compatiblity ,esp scripting.

    I don't think that we have *so* much users to pay so much
    attention on backward compatiblity. Clean code and actions
    is what is much more important at the current state of the
    project, IMHO.
