Export macros from Chrome to imacros vs10

Post by darkmilz » Wed Mar 22, 2017 3:44 am

We' have come into possession of a lot of Chrome imacros (saved as bookmarks) that we would like to import into our desktop application. Other than manually copying the code, pasting it into imacros vs10, and clicking on "save as", is there a simpler method to use all these macros in the Windows application? Thanks for your help!

It is theoretically possible. I don't know if my plan described below will be practically simpler than what you're doing.

So you have to:
1. Export bookmarks to HTML file.
2. Develop a macro/script which extracts necessary info from this local bookmark HTML file and creates corresponding 'iim's on your drive.

FYI. I am able to write a similar code and to make the solution more ideal, would choose a 'js' script working under iMacros for Firefox.
