Keyboard Macro Files (KMF, or KMF Files) are data files that contain macros and key label information for use within the My-T-Soft family & Build-A-Board. One intended use of the Builder will be to modify and work with older (pre 2.00) KMF files, along with newer KMF files. In the current version, these editing capabilities are not available - KMF files can be opened and saved, and future capabilities will be added in later releases.
The KMF files can be thought of tables of data for use within the program. In the 2.00/2.10 versions, there are still distinct KMF files required for use along with the KBF. In 2.20 and later, the KMF files in use are included as part of the KBF file itself. For added information, See KBF Notes and KBF Architecture. The use of KMF files will include mapping tables from key scan codes and key symbols, along with override information and common keyboard macro data
Pre 2.00 KMF notes
In the Pre 2.00 version of My-T-Soft, KBF files defined the key and panel sizes, and KMF files defined the Key Labels and Key Actions. Refer to File Notes for the My-T-Soft family for further information. KEYBRD??.KMF files matched different keyboard layouts, and MAC?????.KMF matched macro panels.
