Format-mode macros limited to topics in which they are defined?
I have installed & enabled EasyMacroPlugin
I defined a view format-mode macros in my http://deseng.ryerson.ca/t/bin/view/Main/SitePreferences
topic. You can see them in raw
mode, right at the end of the topic.
But when I try to use them in another web & topic (e.g. http://deseng.ryerson.ca/t/bin/view/Design/TestMacrosForBoxes
) it seems they aren't active.
Are format-mode macros only valid in the topic in which they are defined?
I did not use the

only applies to topic-mode macros.
Please advise! I really, really

) which can be turned of by using

attribute and the
attribute cannot be used together, I reasoned that unless
wouldn't be able to register them properly.
Is that right?

I don't know anything about how the plugin works internally. I just tried using it and came across the same problem you mentioned originally. By setting
I got it working in the end.

Well, you learn something new every day. Martin, I did as you suggested and it worked fine!
I would suggest that the doc for EasyMacroPlugin
be tweaked to be more clear that topics to which
refers can contain various
