a small problem with macro's in FCPB

I have been playing with macros and made a mistake that has led me to an issue with the macros menu.

I started a macro with the @ symbol which now means I cannot access the macro's/keymap menu in FCPB.

every time I try to access the menu it simply carries out the macro instead. I'd hate to have to delete my macros file and start again but I fear this is the only option.

Perhaps there needs to be a check that players are not using the @ symbol at the start of a keymap or macro, or perhaps make it an illegal character at the start of a macro or keymap in future.

There's a very good reason why the help says macro triggers should always be some kind of special key...

Luckily, though, there are a couple ways to remove or work around the problematic @ macro without removing the whole file. The simplest is to use Ctrl-E (in the original keyset) to access the macro menu. The other option is to turn on command_menu and navigate to the macro menu through that.
The Complainer worries about the lack of activity here these days.
