No, not a stupid question. Just that I found the macro list somewhat unreliable upon copying and pasting. That might have been fixed for now though.
I guess the pencil editor is a more familiar way of editing codes. The fact that it now has a new text search function makes it even more compelling than ever before. You can also do full screen edit to see more codes and perform a partial copy and paste to produce new codes, rather than only seeing a small strip of editing box in the list view where you need to open and close these boxes all the time. So... yes, I edit in pencil edit mode most of the time and I find it more convenient! But to be fair, the pencil editor lacks a lot of right-click features the macro list has. So it might be best to combine these 2 editors into 1 and make it work like a pencil editor lol!
