About Macros

You can use macros in Contributor to automate frequently used commands or processes. After you record a macro, you can play it back to perform all of the steps in the macro with a single action. You can also assign a shortcut to the macro (see Changing Hot Keys), add it to the Quick Access Toolbar (see Quick Access Toolbar), or access it from the Quick Launch bar (see Quick Launch Bar). Macros save you time by streamlining the repetitive tasks you do every day, freeing you up for other tasks.
