Default one eucon command allowed in macro.. normal?

When I try to create a string of commands on a button, it only lets me use a EUCON command once, after that eucon is no longer available.

I have ways around this, but is this normal? Is there a tech reason for it?

Ha! Found this old post of yours... I think I know what's going on. A lot of times when you are building macros or soft keys you will tab away from your DAW and focus on another Application. So even though you are still editing the same set of keystrokes in EuControl, it is focusing on another Application, one that has not been Euconized... like Safari or something. Usually tabbing back over to ProTools then back to EuControl takes care of this. I think this is actually a fairly common gotcha. Hope you are well my man!

Sadly that doesn't help. Switching back to pro tools and then EuControl still doesn't give me the option of adding a second eucon command.

No, there is a definite limitation of one Eucon command per button. It's crazy. You can stack multiple standard keyboard commands though.

That's why I spend money on slightly cludgy workarounds like Keyboard Maestro and Slate Batch Commander.

That money would go to Avid if they added a proper batch command system for Eucon. Stackable Eucon and keyboard/ mouse commands with a suitable 'wait' function to make it all work.

It kind of always seems to be the way with Avid. A new product comes out and you think wow that looks great it does everything I need.
Then when you look closely, the things which would have made it fantastic, have been blocked or not included.

Its not rocket science, I hope they can see that's how people are getting around the limitations and do something about it.
