Macro Monday – a new macro to dig into every Monday!
## The Macro
This macro is currently set up to execute a single command, “ls -la”, on the remote
machine. It piggy backs on the current connection used to access the remote file
in the editor window. Therefore you must have a remote file open when you run it.
You could also modify this to ask you for the command to execute using [Interpolation %ask Shortcut].
To install the macro simply hit the “View Resource” and “Install Instructions”
Once installed – open the Macro properties and set the macro to trigger on a
keybinding of your choice.
