Keyboard macros

A search for ‘macros’ in the Dorico manual comes up empty handed. Can you define and use macros for commonly used sets of keyboard commands, such as when I am setting up very many tuplets of varying complexity?

You’re right, Andro. The scripting feature is there to be changed since day 1, so the team clearly did not communicate about it on purpose. But you can use it indeed.
You’ll find that when you record a macro, it will be available as usermacro in the script menu. But if you record a second macro, it will overwrite the first. You can change it by renaming the first usermacro to whatever feels confortable, in the same folder that holds your preferences, your keycommands_whateverlanguage.json… in a folder named Scripts. Your saved scripts will populate the Sripts menu.
