Import/Export Macros

It would be nice to have the ability to export and import macros from ClipboardFusion. It would be easier to share this program and my macros to help my friends make it more usable to them. It would also make it a lot easier for users to download macros you're providing on the site without them having to worry about dealing with code.
Even adding in the feature as an all or nothing import/export would be a good start. Although it would be nice to have a way to select which ones get imported and exported.
Just food for thought here... I figure a quick and easy way to implement this would just be a simple XML file that would house the name, language, and code. I don't think the hot keys need to be imported as everyone's system could be different.
Thanks for the great product.

Great idea! I've added it to our list and I'll be sure to let you know if/when we're able to implement it.

For now, you can actually do it manually via the registry.

The macros are store in the following registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Binary Fortress Software\ClipboardFusion

Just export the values that start with Macro_#_

Hope that helps!

Just wanted to let you know that in the latest ClipboardFusion Beta (http://www.clipboardfusion.com/Download/Beta), you can now sync your macros online, so that you can load them on other machines where you're logged in. You can also now download the pre-made macros from our site right from within the Macro editor.

Hope that helps!

That's great to see this addition.
I love the idea of being able to download them straight off the website.
However, I would still like to see an Import/Export that works in an offline mode. This will make it easier to share macros with others in the event we don't want to publish them outside. For example, we may have a macro that auto-generates a sql query with proprietary information included in it like server, database, and table names. Sharing them on the web is not possible, nor is syncing a solution since multiple users could make use of it. Having an offline mode would solve this problem.
Anyway, I still love the product and use it everyday. Thanks for all your hard work on it!

Ok, good to know! I'll re-open the import/export ticket with this information added.

Thanks!

We've just released ClipboardFusion 3.0 Beta 5 (http://www.clipboardfusion.com/Download/Beta), and you can now export and import individual macros to/from files on the Settings > Macros tab.

Thanks!
