How to Share a Recorded Marco with others?

<Macro name="......."> ... ... ... </Macro>
Locate and edit shortcuts.xml on a different computer and insert the copied macro definition; a good insertion point may be right before the </Macros> line. Save the file. If you use Notepad++ to do this insertion, restart Notepad++ and the macro should be available.
