Macro recording ... cancelling is too easy
« on: September 16, 2020, 06:10:13 pm »
Here a popup could be useful.
Cancel macro recording? yes/no

I've often lost a macro record session because I hit esc to get to the slick command line -- hard habit to avoid just when macro recording.

Or, change the macro record cancel to something like Ctrl+Break - or some other very infrequently used key combo. Esc is used a lot!

We maybe don't even need a key for this -- just click the record button to stop.

Removing ESC cancel support is easy enough

I've lost my recorded macro many times by accidentally pressing ESC. This should prompt.
