Keyboard macros make it possible to automate repetitive tasks. You can start to record a macro, at which point each key press is recorded, this sequence can then be played back multiple times.

The toolbar contains the 'Record Macro' command icon , this is enabled when a text editor has focus.

When clicked a macro recording is started and additional commands are shown

 - Pause macro recording, temporarily stops the macro recording, pressing this again re-starts recording

 - Stop macro recording, ends this macro recording, making it available to be played back.

 - Cancel macro recording, cancels the recording, discarding the current recording.

The 'Record Macro' command can also be invoked using the keyboard short cut Ctrl-Shift-R.
