    I tried searching around but I haven't been able to find something to resolve my issue. Whenever I try to save a map containing a textmacro like this, for example, in the AIDS system it uses this line.

    Code (Text):
    //!          external ObjectMerger w3a Adef AIDS anam "State Detection" ansf "(AIDS)" aart "" arac 0
    I get this error when I save the map.

    Is the current editor unable to support the text macros or is there a work around? Thanks!

    I believe the current editor supports vJass but not Grimoire Extensions. So the external command won't work. In your case, I would download the test map for AIDS and copy + paste the "State Detection" ability into your map. You can get the test map here:
    System - Advanced Indexing & Data Storage

    Then get rid of the
    //! external
    line, and change this line appropriately:
    Code (vJASS):

    private constant integer LEAVE_DETECTION_ABILITY = 'AIDS'
     


    (For example, if "State Detection" has an object ID A000, you would put
    'A000'
    in place of
    'AIDS'
    )

    You can just put a space between // and ! to turn the external command into a comment and leave it intact so you can see what used to be there.
