Firstly I am not sure I am asking in correct place.
I recorded a very simple macro in Draftsight and I do not know where/how to run it.
I can't find any info about macros in Draftsight on internet.
Thank you for help.
You need to have Microsoft Visual Studio installed to run this macro. Open the macro project in Microsoft Visual Studio to work further.
I've no knowledge on MVS, so please refer to Microsoft site on how to use it.

Hi Deepak and thank you for the answer. I have got a 30 days trial, I successfully recorded the macro in a folder (a few files inside) and now I have no idea how to run the macro.
Go to Tools > Run Script and then pick macro in the file type.
I tried to do it: edit: the first picture shows incorrect path to the folder, but please ignore this
but inside of the folder with the saved scrip there are no scr or mcr files:
This is why I do not understand it at all
Really sorry for that as I was looking the scripts which are similar to macros. You can create them with any text editor.
For running the macro, you need to execute them outside of the DS. For example a macro saved as .swp can be made to run from SolidWorks.
That is ok, thank you. So I still do not understand what I can do with recorded macro action in my folder. How can I run it? Are you able to help me please?
Thank you for your help.
In this case I think the macro feature in Draftsight is absolutely useless.
I am also a Adobe Photoshop user - there are macros too and there is no problem at all to use them inside of Adobe software.
In this case I think we will stay with free version of Draftsight untill they improve the macro.
I am not a programmer and I do not see any point of starting lerning MS Visual Studio. I have got enough to do without it
Deepak - thanks again for your help.
Well I would recommend checking the Scripts function in DS, that seems to be easy I guess.
