Let me know if you can't see the pics, some of the sections in my photobucket album are blocked.

Anyway, I decided I needed to rework my macro's. This:



just wasn't cutting it anymore.

So I've started changing them over to this:



Its more organized I feel, and I like the fact that I'm going across the board with the macro's as it'll save me some flips up and down.
I don't like the fact that I don't have room for the -ja spells though, but for now they go on another line.

I think it'll work efficiently, but I was curious what other ways you kept your macro's organized?

I have to seriously rework my BLM macros.

I recently discovered that there's a command that lets you switch palettes, which has been hugely useful for SMN. I keep all the summons in palette 1, and when I summon an avatar, the macro automatically takes me to the palette that has all the blood pact macros for that avatar. I have a macro on each palette that takes me back to the first main one.

I have always been a heavy macro user, and sometimes not even the G15 keyboard feels like enough, especially now that I have a lot more high level jobs. >.<

I made this change a while back. I still kept my debuffs and such on the ctrl set and used my alt set for nukes. So I would use 6 sets of macros, one for each element. This would allow you to put your -jas on the ctrl set.

ps. like my egg hat from the easter event Very Happy
