Version 3 has been released!

Variable macros

RemoteSign Sequencer has 100 variables, nine of them can be inserted into commands with the  Counter Macro and Formatted counter macro and all can be inserted with the general Variable insertion macro

Counter macro

Wherever you want to display a variable, enter \Cn , where n is the number number. Since the n is only one characters, this is used for inserting variables 1 through 9 only.

For example, to display C1, use this text \C1
To display counter 2, use \C2 etc.

The counter macro will be replaced with however many digits the counter value needs, without any additional spaces.


  • The 'C' must be in upper case
  • Use the "Variable" command to set it value or add or subtract amounts from the counters
  • RemoteSign Sequencer will remember the value of the counters for you.

Required version

RemoteSign Sequencer: 1.0.17 or higher

Formatted counter macro

There is also a Formatted variation of the Counter macro which also operated on the first 9:

Use \Fnw where n is the variable as usual, and the w indicates how many characters should be used for the number. This allows one to ensure that no matter what the value of the variable, it will always use the same amount of space.

For example, \F13 will display variable 1 using 3 spaces. If the value of variable 1 is 9 or less it will use two spaces and one digit.

  • The 'F' must be in upper case
  • If the value is larger than the width specified it will be as wide as is needed. i.e. \F31 will display 23 (using two spaces) if counter 3 = 23.

Required version

RemoteSign Sequencer: 1.1.14 or higher

Variable insertion macro

This can be used for any of the 100 variables.

Use \Vnnn\ where n is the variable.

For example:
\V1\ will insert be replaced with the contents of variable 1.
\V68\ will insert be replaced with the contents of variable 68.
\V100\ will insert the contents of variable 100


  • The V must be uppercase
  • The inserted text will be whatever the length of the variable is.

Required version

RemoteSign Sequencer: 3.8 or higher
