I'll try to list every bug I find in this thread, According to version. I'll also add color to the bugs to precise if the bug is :
- device specific
-
reported but no response yet
- response :
  • Fixed for next update
  • Not fixable/low priority
- false report
- Not directly related to macros in MacroDroid
- Other

You can add your own bugs if you want to.

Watch this thread if you want to be informed of new bugs that you could use.

v5.28

  • In floating text, in option hide all, the ... to insert magic text still shows up.
  • Local variables don't work with floating text.
  • When importing a macro, clicking save changes doesn't save the macro, unlike directly created macros.
  • Creating an If, and pressing cancel keeps the if,which lets you create an if without conditions. Result is always true.
  • It is possible to make an empty bug report after sending the bug report, to do that just use a slow internet connection, go back to the bug report description step and select and remove the text. (Please don't spam the support...) NOTE : It's not reliable as when I tried it (and warning @MacroDroidDev before) it did not work, but it did work one time.

@Endercraft Please do report all bugs via the troubleshooting section as well. I have a good process for dealing with this channel but my ability to track everything on the forum is much less refined :)
This thread was made mainly for people to know current bugs, and maybe use them if they are useful. I do report all bugs via troubleshooting, and keep them updated here.

v5.28.1

  • Copying and pasting floating text won't keep the text. I don't know about other values. (transfered from v5.28)
  • Using hide all in floating text action then switching back to show will make the identifier disappear. It can be fixed by going to hide option.

v5.28.2

  • Discarding a macro with floating text in it removes the text.
    Note that this also existed in 5.28.1, I just didn't have enough time to test it.

v5.28.3
  • You can create a wait 0 ms action by entering 01 (I did it in the seconds field), removing the 1 and very quickly pressing OK - it's actually quite easy. I tested it with just having 1 in the field but I never got it to work.

v5.28.6
  • It's impossible to change the rounded corners of floating text unless you edit the macro outside MacroDroid (I had to do that). This bug existed from v5.28 but I didn't report it for some reason.

I can't use the sms trigger anymore.

I use the default SMS App from Google (Version messages.android_20221018_01_RCO1.phone dynamic)

You checked the monitor inbox?
For me it works fine in the following version (RC02)

v5.28.8
  • When configuring UI Interaction the pointer_location setting is always switched to 0 after clicking OK, even if it was 1 when I configured the action and I didn't interact with the toggle pointer location overlay button. This is annoying because I almost always have that overlay on.
  • Saving a macro that was disabled when exported enables the macro. You can trick people into thinking they're safe but they actually aren't. (transfered from v5.28, it seems my first bug report didn't go through)

v5.28.9
  • [app_name] doesn't work anymore, as you can see by using the attached macro.
    MacroDroid support said:
    This is happening because the wait until trigger fires and overwrites the trigger context information, so the app name gets lost.
  • When you use an intent received trigger, add an extra but change your mind and delete that extra the enable RegEx matching box will still be present. Not that big of an issue, but still an issue to me.
  • If I use my mail auto-fill macro to click through the first/second step of the bug report menu in the third MacroDroid will crash. Doesn't matter if you entered something or not.
  • The dialog for selecting a number to call will not work if the action is invalid. One example is id=1371. (note, it seems to only do that with templates)

Hi, all.

'Clear Notifications' action does not work on MD Beta 5.29.0

I have confirmed that the display notifications works, but clearing notifications does not work.

:-(

Dear Endercraft,

Thanks for the reply.
I have implemented several countermeasures, including using Regex, but they did not work well.

The macros that have always worked do not work well. I can swipe to turn them off but it is a bit uncomfortable.

regards,

MD v5.29.1 has improved this phenomenon. Thank you.
