    Macro script runner - make your operator prototyping faster

    Hello, this little addon is what I use during large projects - do you need to quickly script something small, and you still want full operator functionality with tuning of properties and undo?
    then this is for you.

    This addon adds a new tab with your commands. You can script anything from one line to a longer script.
    Any Integer, float, string and boolean properties defined before actual start of the script, will be interpreted as operator properties(up to 5 supported of each type)

    download the script here:

    and watch a super short video here(which also shows a long-standing blender bug where last edited text disappears when hitting undo, so save your file before running the macro and tweaking operator properties):

    If you like the script and want to support me, go to this page and donate to the blender CAM project.

    Very cool ! This is definitely the type of thing that will help development of small quality-of-life features.

    Yes... And actually, I use it every day for heavier projects. Imagine you realise you need to move a specific animation key for hundreds of objects... or similar stuff which cannot be done manually and developing an addon for it is too much work, and not having operator-like behaviour is not comfortable

    Hi pildanovak,
    Could you make a update to your very useful addon for Blender 2.75, please.
    This traceback about attribut "text" is always there.
    Thanks in advance for your reply, please.

    This script was just updated in the repo.

    new are :
    few bugs fixed
    enable path strings (there was a problem with strings which have \\ in them)
    enable creating shortcuts(there was a blender bug with text specific operators)

    Shortcuts currently work only in object mode, don't know why. Add editmode toggles to start/beggining of your script...
