    Your macros are awesome! I was looking for a macro that would refresh the reminders on a patient. When developing reminder dialogs I often have to:

    - click on the reminder button
    - choose the “Action” menu
    - choose the “Refresh Reminder Dialogs”
    - close the “Available Reminders” window

    This gets very tedious and is a big waste of key strokes. Any help would be appreciated.

      That is the kind of task that’s suited for the macro.
      We’ll explorer this together in 1 month after we return from Africa missionary trip. Thank you for participating.
