Using automatic editing features with other sessions

In the Macro Editor, after you have typed a session reference into the Host ID field of the editing window of a descriptor, then if the session referred to by the Host ID is active, and if the descriptor has a Current button, then you can use the Current button to gather data automatically from the session window of the session that the Host ID refers to.

However, you cannot use the marking rectangle in the same way. That is, you cannot use the marking window to gather editing information from any session window except the session window belonging to the session from which you launched the Macro Editor.
