Maybe you need a special feature, go into Macros_recipes and Code_snippets, Topological_data_scripting, Dialog creation. My macros on Gist.github.

Did you mean to make a GIF file?
I have already tried to use Peek to make a GIF. But I was interested a cool tool that makes animation and pictures simultaneously :)

Hi, Mario!
I tested at Linux Mint 19.3.
The behaviour is same as earlier...
The animation works, but saving does not work :(
Can you make some debug for me?
I like your macros and I want that it works for me :)
