Macro functions

Powerful macro functions of the Pro or Enterprise Edition of the App allows you to use dynamic contents in your phrases, such as customizable time/date stamp, date math, fill-ins, custom forms consisting of input boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, drop-down selections, etc.

Macro functions have to be created in a PhraseExpress MacOS or Windows desktop client as the desktop versions have much better editing capabilities than mobile devices.

You can use pre-filled emails, link or nest phrases, alternate or randomize phrases, perform calculations and string operations, compute conditional statements and much more.

The PhraseExpress Pro App supports use of a selection of the PhraseExpress Mac client macro functions.

Supported macro functions:

#insert, #calc, #date, #time, #datetime, #rnd, #sleep, #insertclipboard, #setclipboard, #input, #settemp, #gettemp, #loop, #check, #randomtext, #cond, #asc, #setphrase, #length, #substr, #trim, #trimleft, #trimright, #replace, #pos, #lowercase, #uppercase, #lowercasefirst, #uppercasefirst, #lowercaseword, #uppercaseword, #autotext, #prefix, #postfix, #lastpos.

Following macro functions must be executed through the App (vs. PhraseExpress keyboard):

#form, #formtext, #formeditbox, #formcheckbox, #formcombobox, #formcalendar, #formphrasecombo, #formnum, #formslider, #formradiogroup, #formgroup, #formcheckcombo, #url.

Some macro functions are adapted for use with mobile devices and do not have the entire feature set of the Mac/Windows version.

You can test macro functions in the freeware App, allowing you to make a confident purchase decision. Occasional license reminder appear, that will be deactivated with an InApp purchase.
