 You can control the order of macros in a macro palette (or the status menu) by prefixing their name with two characters and a closing parenthesis (eg “01)” - two characters and a closing bracket). The macros will be sorted based on the code, but the code will be stripped off before display in the palette (or status menu). You can control the order of macros in a macro palette (or the status menu) by prefixing their name with two characters and a closing parenthesis (eg “01)” - two characters and a closing bracket).

-So to have more than one macro palette, create a macro group for each desired palette and configure it to show a palette as desired. Put your macros in there. Create as many of these as you like. You can configure the Macro Group so that the macros are only active while the palette is displayed, so if you only display it occasionally,​ especially only for one action, then they can have very simple hot keys (like plain letters for example).+To have more than one macro palette, create a macro group for each desired palette and configure it to show a palette as desired.

-You can control the appearance of the palettes in the [[Windows#​Preferences_Palettes_Pane|Palettes preference pane]] or in the macro group configuration. ​ You can choose the style, the opacity of the palette, the size of the entries, the number of columns, whether the entries include the icon, the text and/or the trigger, the title bar (v8.2.1+), and whether the palette shrinks when the mouse is not over it.  You can use the styling to build palettes that just display their icon for example, and combined with custom icons for your macros this can create a nice looking icon palette.+You can control the appearance of the palettes in the [[Windows#​Preferences_Palettes_Pane|Palettes preference pane]] or in the macro group configuration. ​ You can choose the style, the opacity of the palette, the size of the entries, the number of columns, whether the entries include the icon, the text and/or the trigger, the title bar, and whether the palette shrinks when the mouse is not over it.  You can use the styling to build palettes that just display their icon for example, and combined with custom icons for your macros this can create a nice looking icon palette.
