Sierra User Generated Macros

by Marmot Library Network

“Macros in Sierra allow customization of keyboard function keys to have predefined values or shortcuts that help make working with Sierra more productive. Macros are separated by user account so each user can have a different set of macros. A common use of macros is to make a macro that will navigate between Sierra functions at the press of a button instead of multiple mouse clicks.”
