What can a macro really do?

    Playing with N++, and am really liking it.  However, I have a file that I want to repeatedly do the same functions on.  (each day the file is created anew).

    The functions are:

       find xxx and replace with xxxy.
       find mmm and replace with gggg.
        ad nauseum.

    I start macro record, go into find/replace, make changes, {ad nauseum), and eventually press STOP macro recording.

    Playback and save macro are however still grayed out.

    So, what can a macro recording do?

      For the Ctrl+R by TextFX, I'm working on Search & Replace sequences which will do exactly what you're looking for. You'll also be able to load and save as many sequences as you need.
