Forcing Macro Execution

I use a lot of macros.  In many cases the macro is designed to initiated some $Global variables.  But even when included in an object's Label (particularly when imbedded in a text object) they don't always get executed.  I'm not sure why this happens but I've found that opening "Text Macro Management" it will force them to be executed.  Another option is to open the object for editing - but that means finding the object (sometimes it's on a locked layer or on page 0 of the Layout) and may not even be visible for one reason or another.

 

So, I've set up a "Hot Key" as well as a special command for a key on my Gaming keypad.  That automatically opens TMM.  It's very easy to use that to open TMM the first time I open the Layout and again as soon as the Plan is opened.
