Quickpad Fails to Execute Macro

Quickpad Fails to Execute Macro

Quickpad Fails to Execute Macro

I am using Attachmate EXTRA! X-treme 9.0 on Vista. I have some macros that run when executed directly from the list of macros. These are extremely simple macros for pasting text commands to network elements -- mostly TL1. However, many of the macros fail to execute when attached to Quickpad buttons. I've deleted the buttons and recreated them with no change. Although I have significant numbers of concurrent sessions running (a minimum of 12, typically about 20), there is absolutely no interaction between the sessions. I suspect a possible memory problem because I once had a session that I would start from a desktop icon that refused to allow clipboard copying from the session. However, when I deleted the icon and recreated the icon, copying worked. Also, some of my attempts to "Save As" a Quickpad to a new name display the old Quickpad name in the title bar when the new Quickpad was invoked.

RE: Quickpad Fails to Execute Macro

Partial Solution: Macros execute from the list when there are spaces in the macro name. However, they do not execute when attached to a QuickPad button. Rename the macro without a space in the name.
