Error parsing macro

Post by Konrad » Fri 16 Nov, 2012 16:10

I've upgraded from FAR3.0 build 2728 to stable 2942 and I get a number of errors when FAR starts: 'Error parsing macro'. Apparently some macro-related internals have been changed. Any way to import/convert older profile to the newer build?

Any help appreciated.

There is a "Macro2Lua converter": https://github.com/shmuz/Spring/downloads.
Its readme.txt contains usage instructions in Russian, try some automated translator.
And don't hesitate to ask more questions.

Thanks for hint, but it was easier to simply delete macros.db from the profile folder and re-import. I use a couple of macros shipped with FAR and only two of my own: it turns out that it was enough to replace xxx in "macro area" with Keys('xxx') in .farconfig files.
