Why use smart recording?

Software Environment
Version: 4.3.4
Edition: Standard, Professional, Excel

By default, the macro recorder records the absolute coordinates of the cursor (i.e. The coordinates are relative to the top left corner of the screen). When the window is reopened, the location of is changed or the screen resolution is changed, even the operating system is changed, this can lead to some errors during macro replays, because the absolute coordinates of the window location was changed also.

When replaying macros that was recorded by smart recording, E Macro Recorder will automatically find the target window, and lock on the window to operate in window relative coordinates, so as to effectively avoiding misbehavior.

1. Please use the left click as many as possible in order to let E Macro Recorder to know the correct location of the cursor.
2. Please let the window size remains the same during recording and playback, if possible.
