Explanation

This explains the functional steps within the sequence. For all the other XML details please refer to Formats and syntax

This macro simply calls the correct menu.

How to use it

  • Call it whenever you want another search in ShowLibrary. Effectively this is similar to ShowLibrary→(Context Menu)→Search - but this macro is much quicker.
