While the Windows version of Frame lacks a macro capability, it does have
the ability to create your own menus, key bindings, etc. for a full command
set (which is not documented other than a pointer to a commands file).
The ability to use the full command set along with Frames standard feature
set goes a long way to make up for a lack of macros.
The (un)official Adobe word on macros in Mac and Win has historically been
that there are third party macro products available. This is silly and
merely passes the buck, a tried and true Adobe method of pissing customers
