I know this thread is a few weeks old, but I just got back into solving this
(it’s a lot easier now because I just got a 24 inch monitor), and I had to
express how much I love the quick macro apply feature. It takes a lot of
the tedium out of it and I’m really enjoying it now. I’m about halfway done
with the 3Cs.
