Fair enough. Personally I don't see it as a problem. I'd probably create
S&R expressions to convert from single line to multiple lines and back.
Complicated makros I'd copy to a separate file for editing and paste the
result back in.

This is fixed in the latest release.

Other changes are:

 - Main menu re-arranged, Edit window is no longer on a submenu. It's a
   proper dialogue box now, required for the change below.

 - Edit window opens when a file is dragged to a macro button, with Name
   field set to leafname of file dragged.

 - Newlines in files dragged are converted to '|M' so more than 1 line
   can be assigned to a makro.

 - Turn null events off when Ctrl option is off.
