Playback Macro to the end of file

Playback Macro to the end of file

Is there a way to do multiple playback of a macro, and ideally to the end of the file?

Can you play a macro multiple times?

You can generally use multiple selections to do this:

Press Ctrl+A to select the entire file
Press Ctrl+Shift+L to split the selection into n selections, one per line
Press home to move each selection to just the beginning of the line
Playback the macro

Glad you like it :)

You generally don't need macros at all with multiple selection, it's often simpler just to make the selections on the lines you're interested in, and do the editing directly.

Yup, I use macros more for repeated stuff that requires more than 3 steps, or for shortcuts to stuff just to be lazy :P
Multiselections are a God's send :D
