I saw your article in Ralph Grabowski's weekly newsletter, but I don't speak 'programmer', so I only understood parts of it. Thanks, by the way, for the article.
There are programs in the world that have modules that allow users to record actions and keystrokes, with a re-useable macro as the end product. I believe AutoCAD R14 had such a macro recorder. Nowadays, with Revit 2011, on the Manage tab, there is a handsome pair o' buttons presumeably designed to manage macros. However, there appear to be no macros to manage, and no way for users to make them - there IS no macro recorder in Revit.
Is it possible to write a macro that would allow users to record a macro? I'm completely serious - we as mere mortal users have to work within temporal and financial constraints, so we don't have time to learn how to write macros in C# or .net, but we DO need to be able to automate repetitive tasks in Revit.
Any hope? Or am I indescribably naive, considering how much this would cut into the business of programmers?
