StormFront stores settings (such as highlights and scripts) separately for each character, either on the server or locally. This can be toggled inside StormFront under Options > Settings > Location.

Special keywords that can be used in macros include:

\r - Send the command.
\p - pause 1 second before continuing.
\x - Delete the contents of the command line before continuing.
@ - Place the insertion marker here.
\? - Replace this with the contents of the command line before starting.
