How does macro playback react when playing multiple macros at once? On the kone you have to differentiate between short and overlong macros. Short macros fit into the memory of the mouse and are played directly from the hardware. Overlong macros consisting of more than 20 keystrokes don't fit into the mouse and are executed on the computer by the driver. On Windows, while an overlong macro is played and you try to execute an overlong macro from the same or another button, the running macro is simply stopped. If you try to execute a short marco while executing an overlong macro, both are played simultaneously which may result in a complete mess! On Linux, I changed the behaviour a bit to what I thought to be more consistent. To stop an overlong macro you have to press the same button that started it. This way its possible to playback multiple overlong macros at the same time. Expect this behaviour to change one day in a way to be more like Kone[+] where the same button is pressed to stop and other macro buttons are deactivated while one macro still is executed. Read What do I need to know about macro execution? for more information.
