Error in Changing Macro Category Name

Recommended Posts

I have created several new macros. However, when I wish to enter them into a new category I get an error as follows:

  1. Click on the hamburger menu at the top of the Library Panel.
  2. Select Create New Category. This creates a new category called Macros.
  3. Click on the Hamburger menu for this new category.Select Rename.
  4. I now get an error message saying "You already have a macro category named 'Macros'.Please choose another name." (Note the lack of space between Macros and Please.)
  5. I now click on Close and I am now able to choose another name.

Needless to say, I do not already have a category called 'Macros'.
