I like to have it do simple things....
Change from the current layer to the Dim layer and then back to the original layer when placing a dimension
Change from the current layer to the Viewport layer when creating a new Viewport in PS and then back to the original layer
Add specific text to a dimension like (TYP) or MIN, MAX
Insert a specific block or leader/text that I use all of the time
Just upgraded to 2012 full version from 2009 and I guess the recorder files do not convert because all of my "simple things" do not work. Good way to purge the old !
