OMG... I'm still drooling over the updates to SCH, but am wondering how the **** I'm gonna macro everything now??

What are some macro techniques/setups some of you are using? I've put the new "/macro Set #" command to good use so far, but three new job abilities and a new spell? Whoof!

Help me out!

On RDM, I arranged many of my macro pages to line up with the way you get elemental spells.
For example:
On Page 2 CTRL-> Stone, Water, Aero, Fire, Blizzard, Thunder
One Page 2 ALT-> Enstone, Enwater, Enaero, Enfire, Enblizzard, Enthunder
On Page 3 CTRL-> Barstone, Barwater, Baraero, Barfire, Barblizzard, Barthunder

etc. you get the idea.

Since SCH potentially has a similar spell set to RDM, I arranged my spells in a similar way, except:
(everything is moved down so I have a page for Arts and Strategems and abilities)
On Page 2 ALT-> Sandstorm, Rainstorm, Windstorm, Firestorm, Hailstorm, Thunderstorm, Voidstorm, Aurorastorm
On Page 3 ALT-> Geohelix...and that's the only helix I have right now. :P

It's all very easy to remember. This would've been very convoluted and impossible under the old macro system. But with the new macro pages, it's been very easy to make it so I can remember where everything is. I will have plenty of room for the new spells and abilities.

Mainly I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to setup my Main Macro "Page". I have pages that I jump to for all my white grimoires, and same for my black grimoires... in fact, I have two main sets, one for each Art. I am on these sets for the majority of the time while I'm in each art, and flip to the other pages for various spells (which I then /macro Set # as the last line in that macro to send me to my main set again).

This will definitely be some fun problem solving in oh... one hour when we can get online and check out the new stuff!!
