This plug-in is an attempt to provide language-independent editor keyboard-macro record/play support. You can build or record macros and save them. Macros can be edited. Macros can be imported/exported for transfer to another Eclipse. Some scripting support is provided in an optional plug-in via Beanshell. Recording macros from the keyboard has issues because of the lack of Eclipse support, but mostly works pretty well. A special find dialog is provided to allow recording of Find operations, but other types of dialogs are not "recordable".

I have gone to some effort to make this work in Eclipse 4.3 recently (end of 2013), but future Eclipse changes may break aspects of my code.

Is it possible to "bulk" play the same macro on selected editors lines ?
