    T: Wi-Fi disconnect, A: Force Location Update. Why?

    Interesting. One long macro would be a lot of actions to go through. Easier now, at least, since we can collapse conditional actions. Many macros makes for a lot to scroll through. I've got over two hundred sixty on my tablet.

    T: Wi-Fi disconnect, A: Force Location Update. Why?

    Right-oh. Another factor is your location update rate. You want it low when you're planning to stay someplace awhile and high if you're on the move. So my macro notices the Wi-Fi cut out and checks if it's moved; if it's time for another macro to speed up that update rate. Another question...

    Gamer's Companion Macros

    Thinking very generally about ways macros can be created as conveniences for gamers. There's what I've made, what I might make, and what gamers might want. Also interested in what macros are already out there. Off the top of my head: floating buttons that appear to remind you about...

    T: Wi-Fi disconnect, A: Force Location Update. Why?

    A popular macro I've seen is T: Wi-Fi disconnect, A: turn off Wi-Fi. The reason makes sense but there's an obvious problem. I do it differently. The title of this post is essentially the whole trigger & action set. To expand on that... Trigger: disconnected from any Wi-Fi network...

    Smart Bulbs

    Ooh, good question. I don't have any smart-locks yet, either. As I recall, the only new access you have to grant is linking the Alexa Skill to a Patreon account. Patreon's widely known, so seems safe. Then you get your access string by e-mail with instructions on how to test it and...

    Smart Bulbs

    Okay. Found those with Google but not directly on IFTTT. @Pseudocyclic , do you know a way to find out for sure if maybe one of the home remote tools connects to those two brands? @StarkTech01 There are two Alexa Skills I use that would serve your purpose, IFTTT not required. Consider...

    Smart Bulbs

    Since they work with Alexa, there are definitely ways to make the macro you want. With IFTTT also, probably! :-) All we have to do is search IFTTT for your smart-home service. What brand(s?) are your bulbs & switches?

    Smart Bulbs

    Probably more ways than one. Just gotta ask; why NFC tags? You have to first ensure your Android's NFC setting is switched on, then it probably only works with the screen on. That's a bit much just for turning on lights. If you're sure though, tell us what brand of bulbs you're using...

    Ways To Modify Only Part of a String?

    Seeking most efficient way to switch just part of a sentence, most likely verbs. A variable will either get passed in or set to match triggers with text. Examples are "turn off computer," "turn off tablet," or "turn off Nintendo Switch," etc. Alternatively, they'll be "open bedroom window,"...

    Onyx Boox Nova3 Color! Okay for running macros?

    Just got one of these beauties! Is it indeed the first consumer E Ink device in color? Wasn't too hard to get the Google Play Store up and running on it. I searched and saw that MD can be installed. But should I? My inkling is I've kinda gotta baby this thing. It does a lot of...

    LDPlayer emulator

    Right. I meant before I ever saw these threads, I was going to write a post asking about emulators. If LD Player is the standard recommendation, I don't have to. :cool: I've got it installed and running. Now I've just got to learn it.

    LDPlayer emulator

    Is LDPlayer good enough that you can actually edit macros on it? Is any emulator that good? I may post this as its own topic.

    disable macro(this macro)

    Think I get it. Many actions involving other macros have the option to select "this macro" instead. The macro will perform the action on itself instead of another. I just tried a test. Presently, you have to configure which macro to disable/enable manually and change accordingly after...
