 +The //Alert// action displays an alert in a separate window. The alert may contain static text which you enter in the Comment field. The comment field can also contain Text Tokens such as the name of the macro, a variable, a date, the clipboard or numerous other tokens.
 +
 +You may also change the title for the alert.
 +
 +You can optionally set a sound (v8+) to be played when the alert is displayed.
 +
 +The alert provides two buttons:
 +  - Stop — stops the macro from continuing so following actions will not be carried out 
 +  - Continue — allows the macro to continue and execute following actions.
 +
 +If the macro continues, the [[token:​AlertButton|%AlertButton%]] token (v8+) is set to the name of the resulting button (Continue).
