The macro recoding function which is built in some softwares, i.e., MS OFFICE that enable a user to “record” all history done by a mouse clicking and keyboard typing for a certain playback time. You can play the macro to repeat a series of recorded commands. I’m guessing if the macro recording function implemented in a Lumerical package, a user would save much time to write script commands.
Thanks for your feedback about the macro recording function - I will pass this feedback on to our developers.
In the meantime, as you mentioned, writing a script to perform repetitive commands is probably the best option.
