    Macro Picker not a Doc Type option?

    I am currently developing a new Umbraco site and in the past have used the Macro Picker in the Document Types to select the macros for each page. I have noticed however that this Macro Picker option has now disappeared and that the documentation suggests using RTE's to pick the macros.

    Is this the best option? From experience I found content editting easier with the Macro Picker than using the built in RTE picker.

    Is there are a reason as to why this picker was removed in the latest version of Umbraco? What are the best options for selecting macros in the content pages?

    Thanks, Pascal

    Hi Pascal,

    If you still wish to use the functionality out of the box in umbraco then the RTE must be used, this is obviously not an ideal editing experience, Umbraco now favours the Grid Module approach to these types of 'Macros'.

    I would suggest at converting to the Grid Editor, https://our.umbraco.com/Documentation/Getting-Started/Backoffice/Property-Editors/Built-in-Property-Editors/Grid-Layout

    and there is a good 3rd party package that works really well along side the above:

    https://github.com/umco/umbraco-doc-type-grid-editor

    Hope this helps,

    Regards,

    Louis
