    Hi I am looking for a little help creating a macro that repeats itself infinitely until I stop it or if that isn't possible for it to repeat x action every x minutes and then alert me when the macro is over.

    Example: Press M1 = Save Document (Ctrl+S) every 20 minutes until I press M1 again
    Press M1= Save every X minutes for X amount of time and then set timer that causes keys or change colour or something that could alert me that the macro is not running

    If possible I would like to know how to do both methods if they are possible

    Hey Kayne!

    Your first option is possible. However, it isn't so straightforward if you don't know where to look. Here's what to do.

    Open Synapse, go to Macros, and click the + button to create a new macro. Give it a nice name. Select ' NO DELAY ' and click RECORD.

    1. push down CTRL
    2. push down S
    3. let go S
    4. let go CTRL

    Click STOP to stop recording your macro.

    You should end up with a macro like this: http://prntscr.com/dz5weh

    In this list, select ' ↑ CTRL' (which should be the bottom of four actions in the list) and click INSERT at the bottom. Select the dropdown to be Delay After. Enter your duration of 1200 seconds (20 minutes, right? ;)). Click INSERT to add it to the macro.

    You should now have a macro like this: http://prntscr.com/dz5vzl

    This should be your functioning macro! To set it to M1, select your keyboard in the bottom of synapse's interface, click your M1 key, and set the Key Assignment dropdown to ' MACRO '. Assign the macro you just made, and have playback option set to ' Toggle continuous playback on/off using assigned key '.

    Your macro should now be functioning. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    So like when you put "No Delay" does it skip over some because it might be too fast? for example i make a macro with my password in it so i don't have to type it, will it skip over some of the letters because the keys are too fast to register?

    That probably depends on the receiving software, though I have never noticed so myself.
