Inspired by Oli's tips on adding wait times and clicks to macros in Creator I thought I'd share this handy feature which I figured out a couple days ago, also not supported in the GUI or mentioned anywhere.
You can add code for switching profiles to a macro, which opens up a lot of functionality (though can get a little messy). For example the code below copies a clip in Adobe Premiere, ripple deletes it, then switches to the next profile which I have setup to facilitate insert pasting the clip elsewhere in the timeline. Once the clip is pasted, it goes back to the previous profile (replace NEXT_ with PREVIOUS_ in code for this).
This could also be achieved by using a universal hotkey macro to switch profiles in Creator, but the code below will work across any install without external macros.
You can actually switch profiles an arbitrary number of times in a row, to enable 'jumping over' different profiles. In this way, I'm working on setting up 'core' profiles and then branching out from those with different actions. I.E. copy becomes paste (as described) or selecting an edit point switches to an 'edit mode' profile.
Having better support for this kind of thing would be awesome. A start would be adding the ability to switch to "PROFILE_NAME" so that one wouldn't have to carefully curate the order of profiles in Creator to get this kind of thing working.
