CoStat's Macros

CoStat can auto-record your actions in simple macros, or you can program sophisticated macros with the macro programming language.

Examples of Uses for Macros -

Assign frequently used processes to a button on the macro button bar.
Menus and dialog boxes are fine for normal program use. But if there are things that you do frequently, you can save a lot of time by recording a macro and assigning the macro to a button on the button bar. Then, a whole series of actions can be reduced to clicking a single button. This is a great way to customize the program.
In CoStat, store all the commands in a multi-part analysis.
For example, File : Load, Statistics : Descriptive, Statistics : Regression. You can then rerun the analysis with another data file. Or, write a macro to do a series of polynomial regressions (Degree=1, 2, 3, and 4).
In CoText, automate routine or unusual operations.
For example, search and replace are fine for single lines of text. But with a macro, the "Replace With" text can include multi-line blocks of text or other commands (Home, End, Left, Right, Up, Down, Enter).
