  1. Ola…
    Estou com muita dificuldade em executar a o “SE”
    assisti o seu vídeo de tutorial e mesmo assim não estou conseguindo
    poderia fazer um tutorial melhor sobre essa função

    1. Novos tutoriais em vídeo vão demorar um pouco ainda pois estou trabalhando na nova versão. Por hora sugiro estudar os arquivos de exemplo que se encontram no arquivo de ajuda do programa ou na página de ajuda deste site.

  2. Good day, Mr. Pulover.
    It was a great surprise to find out that you were again working on your Macro Creator. We started using it by the end of 2019 and we liked it very much, but the frequent crashes and some minor problems we encountered (that we attribute to plain lack of knowledge) were very disappointing. We didn’t report any bugs because we felt that the program had been provided “as is” with no further warranties.
    I found out there were newer versions yesterday and in my first attempt to run a macro that I had not touched for more than a year it ran flawlessly and created a 700 page Powerpoint presentation. We are very optimistic that we can again start using it and automating daily processes.
    Thank you very much for your efforts.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Juan. I’m glad to know that it’s being useful for you. I’ve been away from this project to work on other ones. I’m back for now but don’t know for how long, so if you find any other bugs, please do report them on github.

  3. Can you use this on a separate window so you can do something else instead?
    Because the thing says “winactive”

  4. I am always getting the reminder for the language update, but I have installed it already.

    A BUG report:
    I recorded a perfectly fine macro, used it for a few days, today I opened it, changed the iteration count, ran it, and did not save it before closing… and pooof! it’s gone from my HDD (Good thing, that I had a backup, because that happened before).

    Also a feature request:
    If I select multiple lines, and press [SPACE] I would suggest to toggle all checkboxes. If they are already selected, unselect them. (BTW, great thinking with the checkboxes, that makes troubleshooting soo much easier)

  5. I had version 5.3.9 installed, checked for updates through the help menu, but the 5.4.0 update wasn’t shown. Now I am rid of the “Language Update” reminder too.

  6. I am trying to donate. Paypal gives me a screen in spanish I think. I dont want to enter info without understanding what is being asked. Id be happy to donate if this can be solved somehow. :0)

    1. You could copy text and paste it in google translate if you have doubts.
      I’m french and donated to him few minutes ago, no issues for me 🙂

  7. I second that was said by Juan Agudelo.
    Tried Macro Creator version 5.0.5, and if its interface was cool and there were many options, it was buggy.
    Now last versions work flawlessly, many thanks Pulover 🙂
    I just donated, thanks !

  8. I downloaded 5.4.0 onto a Windows 10 x64 Xeon workstation. Application would load, but when trying to use the pull down menu, move the location of the window, or record a macro, will lock up requiring CTRL-ALT-DELETE to close (freezes all screen interaction with running applications). I will try running the next version to see if it is compatible again with Windows 10 in this environment.
    Thanks for trying.

  9. I love PMC (up to 5.4), have been using it for many years now to automate complex repetitive tasks in several applications. My biggest wish for PMC would be the fixing of a bug which causes the macro to get corrupted when the user is editing a lot.
    example: I have a script with 3 macros and about 20 functions, and if I copy/paste a few lines from one macro/function to another, the last few functions in the file simply currupt because they randomly get lines added which are in the copy paste buffer. It sucks really bad to find out a function broke 10 edits ago…
    This happens especially when some endif or loopend is missing or misplaced (in terms of nesting of these commands) and when the macro source gets larger.

  10. Hi,

    Just started using this macro creator. Thanks for creating it and supporting it as much as you have! For the most part I find it very useful. But it still seems to crash on me very often (I read the previous updates that it had been stabilized, not so much for me). I also found that when I try to ‘delete macro’ either using CTRL+W or the delete macro toolbar button, the dialogue box that opens up and asks me if I want to confirm to delete will not close. Whether I press okay or cancel or ESC, whether I select to show this box again or not, I can’t get out if it in anyway unless I end the program with task manager and restart.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Is there another way to safely remove a macro?

    1. I’m not aware of anyone facing this problem. Have you tried to uninstall it and delete the %AppData%\MacroCreator and reinstalling it (or use some erase tool)? You can also try to install the x32 version, that sometimes solves these problems.

      1. exactly the same here, keeps crashing and the only way it’s task manager.
        i’m on win10. do you use wired keyboard ? I use a logitech keyboard with its dongle and a microsoft bluetooth mouse. I don’t know if this could be related to the crashes.

  11. So i was using V4 and recently upgraded to latest V5. What happens to me after a while of running code is that the screen starts flickering and gets fuzzy. Or isn’t the code. It’s something happening to the image on the screen. And it only happens when i run my macros. Anyone have any idea why? And what i can do about it??? It doesn’t go away completely if I restart. But it does go away if i stop using pullover for a while…

  12. Desde já, muitos parabéns pelo programa, é fantástico.
    Há alguma previsão de quando terá um comando para as janelas do chrome? é que pelo que sei o explorer irá ser desativado pela Microsoft.

    1. Obrigado. Não tenho previsão, mas já estou estudando como fazer automação no Chrome. Está na lista de features que quero implementar na versão 6.
