Not too difficult but there are some things to consider. How do we
indicate that we want to insert a macro instead of changing one?
Shift-drag maybe?

What to do if the set is already completely full? Give a warning?
Silently drop the last macro?

Yes, that's the easiest way to achieve this.

Similar questions here as above.

The maximum size for macro names is 31 chars but this can be changed by
editing the source and the resource file. There is an updated version of
Makro 2.00 available now which allows the width of the main window to be
specified (Iconbar menu > Width...).

The width is saved along with the window's position and scroll offset
when choosing Iconbar menu > Save so is restored when Makro is started.
