Keep the Macros Dialog Box Tidy

Reduce clutter in your Macros dialog box by preventing it from displaying some of your macros.

When developing a macro, it’s often best to split the macro into several small parts, each responsible for performing some part of the overall action. This makes the macro easier to write, easier to debug, and—best of all—easier to reuse.

The downside to this strategy is that the number of macros in the Macros dialog box (ToolsMacroMacros) quickly balloons, making it hard to find the one you need amid the clutter. True, you can assign macros to toolbars or menu buttons [Hack #1] , but if you use the macros only occasionally, you may not want to clutter up your toolbars or menus with them either.
