quick question about macrosFollow

Ok, for some reason whenever I create a macro (have made one for conjurer and one for botanist).. when pressing the icon it just scrolls through everything I wrote in purple text but absolutely nothing happens.

For example:

/equip main "weathered hatchet"

I do that while I have my weathered cane equiped and it does not change. It remains the cane. Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? This happens even if I just type into chat that same line above and skip the macro.. just to test it. Surely it's something stupid I'm overlooking.

You know.. I went back into the game (I use Steam to browse the internet while playing) decided to try just that and it worked. Did not realize it was case sensitive.

Thanks a lot. Like I said.. it was probably something stupid.

glad it was something that was so easily fixed!

don't even ask me how long it took me to figure out that <p1> etc did not work for targeting players in spell macros, but only to display their names. Seriously, I scratched my head for way too long before figuring out I had to use <t> *facepalm*
