Macros are a powerful feature of ProPresenter that allow you to create a custom group of actions and then have a slide trigger them or have them be manually triggered from show controls.
Setting Up Macros
To set up a macro, the first step is to click on the [M] icon in show controls (located at the bottom right of the ProPresenter window). Then you can click the small + button to create a new Macro. Once the new macro is added you can change the name of it by immediately typing it in or by right clicking-rename after it is created.
Once it is added and you have it named, you can right click on the new macro, choose “Add Action” and then add the first action you would like this macro to apply. You can add any of the following:
You can add these individually by selecting each one you want and then right clicking again to select the next, or you can choose “Action Palette” and then drag any actions from the action palette you want this macro to apply to the macro you want to apply them (this is shown below).
There are two options for triggering Macros. You can either click the macro in show controls and all the actions you’ve put on that macro will be triggered or you can set a slide to trigger that macro.
For the first option, you would open the Macro icon in the show controls and then click on the Macro you wish to be triggered.
For the second option, applying it to a slide, you would either drag the macro from show controls onto a slide or you can right click on a slide, then “Add Action”, “Macro”, and choose the Macro you wish for the slide to trigger.
To edit a macro, you can right click on it in show controls, hover on edit actions and choose which specific action you want to edit. You can also hover on remove actions to remove the action you want removed or hover on “Add Action” to add another action to it. Any changes made to the macro here will be reflected when you trigger this macro via show controls or via the slides you already have that macro on.
