    Yes you can do it. We do it with 0i-MD controls.
    I would have to look for parameters.
    You want a comment to disllay in the macros page? Or you just want to declare variable names for use within that program?

    Re: Macro variable name

    The Variable Names that you register will only be visible from the Pattern Data Menu, the variable page will not display them.

    Here is a copy of our O9501:

    You can extrapolate from here, or reference your Parameter Manual Appendix-A for the Character Code List.

    If you figure out a way to get the names to display on the variable page, please let us know!
