Customer Question
I had a macro...

I had a macro command set up using WPx5. The computer on which that command was located is now gone south. I would like to set up a simple command to change font color, and assign that macro to a key stroke such as alt r, (change font color to red). I'm now using WPx7. Where do I look for instructions on writing such a macro?

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your machine, and what operating system are you running?

I am using Window 10 on an HP laptop

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

To record the macro that you want, first of all:

1 Open a New (blank) document. Otherwise you may reformat the document you are currently editing.

Then, click - Tools

- Macro

- Record.
2 Choose the drive and folder where you want to save the macro.
3 Type a filename for the macro in the Filename box. (maybe the name 'CTRLR' ?)
4 Click Save.
5 Perform the action: setting the font color to Red.
6 Click - Tools

- Macro

- Stop.
Let me know whether that performs the function you want it to perform, please.

Thanks Russel:
I had gotten that far on my own. However, I would like to assign the macro (play) to key(s) on my keyboard, so if I were to presss cttrl+"r", it would play the makro.

I cannot pursue it now, because I have an appointment in 20 minutes, and it will take 15 minutes to get there. Is it possible to reach you in the morning?
Software technician: Russell H., Computer Support Specialist replied 9 months ago

Have you saved a .WCM file named CTRLR.WCM ? for a Ctrl-R macro?

If so, in what folder did you save it? the default that came up when you went to save the macro?
