-Since your two Macs will likely not be identical, you may have to adjust your macros to work properly on both Macs.  Using the various [[Tokens]] and [[Calculations|functions]] can help.  For example the [[token:​MacUUID|%MacUUID%]] token is a unique ID for each Mac, and can be used to test which Mac the macro is running on.  Other functions, like the [[function:​SCREEN|SCREEN]] function can be used to ensure your macro behaves appropriately regardless of the details of the Mac.+Since your two Macs will likely not be identical, you may have to adjust your macros to work properly on both Macs.  Using the various [[Tokens]] and [[Calculations|Functions]] can help.  For example the [[token:​MacUUID|%MacUUID%]] token is a unique ID for each Mac, and can be used to test which Mac the macro is running on.  Other functions, like the [[function:​SCREEN|SCREEN]] function can be used to ensure your macro behaves appropriately regardless of the details of the Mac.
