  1. Once I start recording a new macro I have no issues at all. Everything works fine and it records all my commands correctly. The issue is inserting a block within the macro. When the macro is played, as soon as the playback comes to the “Insert” command, my model space zooms and pans immediately back to the original coordinates of creating the macro. I am inserting just a regular 2D block, not a Dynamic block. I have right-clicked on every part of the Action Tree within the macro and specified to wait for user input so that I may place the blocks where I choose, not the coordinates recorded when creating the macro, but it’s that first insert that causes all the problems. The rest of the inserts within the macro work just fine without taking off somewhere else. I work for a structural engineering firm so I would like to have a macro that places two studs at each side of a window with a beam and callout in between. Obviously I would do this to every window in the building, but every time that I start my macro that I created, it gets to the insert block part of the play back and zooms and pans completely some where else in my drawing. That leaves me to have to pan back to find my window in order to finish my task. I think the Action Recorder is a great idea, and it’s almost there for me! I need just a little help. Thank you for your time!!! AutoCAD 2012
