Item11174: "Macros" page is broken

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Urgent Closed Engine    
The example for macro parameters doesn't work, because the PreferenceSettings page - which includes the example - uses a * Set and that doesn't work when the topic is included in Macros.

Must be fixed.

Do we need the example in Macros, or can it be referenced to the PreferenceSettings topic for the example. Divide PreferenceSettings up into STARTSECTION{type="include" blocks so that the example doesn't appear in the Macros topic. The other fix would be to put the Set statements in the Macros including topic. Actually this could better demonstrate the side effect. Have different set statements in the two topics and point out the differences.

I think I have reworked the examples to show the impact of includes on set statements.

-- GeorgeClark - 08 Oct 2011

That works for me; thanks George.
