Quick Launch hot keys - Save as a bank? May 7, 2020 12:06:16 GMT

I'm a bit confused on how the Quick Launch works in relation to the open instance. I have to open a blank instance of MMM or a saved macro to get quick launch to work (of course). But I also want to record a single macro on the fly. If I try to record one and use it, but then I use a hotkey Quick Launch to use another, it replaces the current temporary macro. The fix seems to be to open yet another instance and make my temporary macro. I'm unsure why the Quick Launch doesn't overwrite it but at least it works! However if I the try to save that macro and add it to the quick launch, it seems not to save it to Quick Launch correctly.
I'm using MMM to help data from invoices and then paste that data into our software. I've successfully done this with one invoice template from one company. It takes about 4 macros to go through the process but it's amazing how much time and frustration it saves, and it's 100% paperless!
However we have about 5 invoice templates from the various companies, and each will need their own set of macros. I'm not sure I have enough hotkeys and it'll get confusing! It'd be great to load a bank of macros, so essentially you use the same hotkeys for each set. If the Quick Launch menu had a Save As function I think that would work, as I'd just load the bank of macros I need for a particular set of invoices.
Is there a way to do this?
I'm still trying to get through all the FAQ and instructions. MMM is more sophisticated than I realized. My immediate boss seems very impressed with the potential and would like to take it to the higher-ups. I see this though as a temporary solution for a much more painstaking and expensive fix to integrate our vendors' software.
I hope to make a video of what I'm doing to get feedback. I'd post it here and to a few entities that specialize in PDF extraction. There may be much better ways of doing what I'm doing and it'd be great to get feedback.
