    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    Sure. I gave it all the permissions it requested. And again - it works fine when my phone is dialed directly so it seems the macro has all the permissions it needs and is working fine. It's when a call is forwarded from Google Voice... And I appreciate the ideas for workarounds some of which...

    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    Great idea and I had hopes but there is something very odd when my cell gets a call forwarded from Google Voice. New macro with Two triggers: Incoming call from Starred group and incoming call from my contact and my wifes contact. (Her contact contains her cell number and my contact contains...

    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    That's an interesting idea. I've never (yet) used notifications for anything so perhaps this would help although, like I've been saying, MD passes the caller ID NAME and NUMBER in the magic text so I'm not sure why this isn't working but perhaps there is different info in the notification...

    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    Thanks! I've never heard of that app before and it seems powerful and popular. It's just I don't WANT another app. I want to understand why I'm having the issues I'm having although it would be interesting if a different app could get the caller ID info that MD isn't giving me, but that would...

    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    Hi. Sorry - what about Call group? Isn't that a trigger? How would that change the value in the caller ID variables? Sorry if I'm missing your point.

    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    Thank you for the reply. That's a good thought to check for duplicate FT IDs in different macros which I just did and made them all unique and added the macro name to the FT just to make sure. On the other hand, I obtain the Caller ID info the same way each time so I'm not sure why the display...

    How do I obtain caller ID info that is displayed on my phone?

    I feel this used to work but am not certain. I'll start off by saying it MIGHT have something to do with Google Voice numbers or a mystery 3rd party app but I have so few I would conceivable suspect and do NOT want to start deleting apps one by one. I WISH I could COMPLETELY disable MD for a...

    Floating text not working as expected after last update

    After the update to enhance floating text with a click to remove option, FT doesn't seem to work correctly for me. In this simple test, TEST ON is not displayed although everything else works. I should say it USUALLY doesn't work because sometimes it does. I have another macro which displays a...

    Intent - battery percentage of a bluetooth device

    Doing exactly this has been my project off and on for a while. The LACK of info on this amazes me. I found very little and had to experiment, reverse engineer and damage my brain but I have something that seems to work fairly well. Try starting with this trigger. When BT device connects or...

    How to prevent my macro from running twice at the same time?

    I found this while researching the same question and the Macro Invoked recently seems fine but how to stop the SECOND invocation? If I use Cancel Macro (this macro) the macro stops while in the middle of the first (original) trigger. I realize I could surround the entire macro in one large IF...

    Cancel Macro command ignored (and more)

    Of course I have done that. Works fine! I have removed the SMS trigger and left only the Notification Received trigger. I've tested this the best I can and I THOUGHT messages to my Google Voice number were not triggering the SMS from any Number trigger but they are now. As for the IF clause...

    Cancel Macro command ignored (and more)

    Thanks, Pseudocyclic. Even though it's a fairly straight forward macro, that's not a bad idea. I cloned it and removed all but the essentials then disabled the original. Tomorrow morning I will use a credit card and it will get a simplified test.

    Cancel Macro command ignored (and more)

    Hi. Thanks for the thoughts. I DO have Regexp checked. I HAVE tried using if exclude. BOTH If scenarios WORK when using the TEST MACRO button. I swear it did not work in real life as proven by my screen capture above which shows the text being examined. And nothing explains why the Cancel...

    Cancel Macro command ignored (and more)

    Ok. I'm sure it's just something I don't understand and I am new to MD so something is going on that I don't understand and I'd appreciate any guesses. This macro is watched for incoming messages from credit card uses and speaks text extracted from the message. It's a little complicated because...

    Can I detect when an unpaired Bluetooth device is available?

    Oh drat. Thanks for the advanced warning so I don't think I'm doing something wrong although BT devices do have to broadcast something, sometimes so maybe??? I'll experiment but thanks for the heads up.

    Can I detect when an unpaired Bluetooth device is available?

    Thank you, Brush. I would never have thought of that.

    Can I detect when an unpaired Bluetooth device is available?

    Yes, thank you. At least you verified to me there is such a thing but I'm sleep deprived this morning and can't find it. I see Connectivity -> Bluetooth Event which has choices of BT en\disabled and Device Dis\connected but that doesn't seem to be it. Could you be a bit more specific? Thanks!

    Can I detect when an unpaired Bluetooth device is available?

    My wife has a bluetooth headset. It is NOT paired to my phone. It has no power on indicator light so I would like a macro to be able to detect when the headset is powered on. I see no triggers or sensors to work with this. I do NOT want to pair it to my phone. I did research something about a...

    Why does magic text fg_app_name SOMETIMES show as Macrodroid?

    uuhhhhh so in other words, it doesn't always work as hoped or as expected. I see. Thanks. Good to know. Is this a bug waiting to be fixed? Is there any known workaround aside from perhaps only triggering for a list of apps then using the "which trigger activated me" type of logic?

    Why does magic text fg_app_name SOMETIMES show as Macrodroid?

    The large picture is I have a macro which mutes sound and I thought I'd add a display to help me learn the names of the apps running when I trigger it. My question is why it sometimes displays an app name like Youtube then the floating text quickly changes to Macrodroid but SOMETIMES it ONLY...
