Macros save you time and typing by allowing you to specify abbreviations for words or phrases. When you type the abbreviation in the comments area of an MRE, DVMAX will automatically replace it with the full word or phrase. In addition, macros themselves can include placeholder tags that serve as points you can jump to and select text from a list of choices. There are Simple Macros, Macros that include Finding Items and Manual Macros, which are macros that include a list of predefined options that display when you insert the macro. Macros are used to save typing and improve accuracy of notes in MREs.
By working with Veterinarians for the past 20 yrs and research facilities for the past 5 yrs, we have accumulated a vast array of macros and templates that truly eliminate the need to type.
