    DekoCast and Macros from PostDekoLite

    I'm working up a new design for our sports ticker (DekoCast 4.1.2 with Attendant Solutions from BTI) that should apply a different style to the winning team.

    When I open the ATX file in PostDeko Lite, the macro executes as expected. When the ATX file is called up through DekoCast, the macro fails to execute.

    I've double-checked my paths in PostDekoLite's Preferences and everything looks correct.

    Any thoughts about where the problem lies? PostDeko Lite? DekoCast? The ATX file generated by AS?

    Thanks in advance!

    DekoCast styles are set by using Tags.  Check the Users Guide Section 3, Editing Objects in the Scene, sub-section Using Embedded Tags with Deko Object Text. 

    I am not sure how the macro will be read to tell the style when to change (i.e. the winning team score).  Try Customer Support.
