Sometimes a user redefines a standard macro such as %% toolbar %% and finds that sometimes it works, and other times the default operation is used.

Answer

When a built-in macro is redefined in the webx.tpl file and then called from another macro, the %% use %% directive is required to call the redefined macro. For example:

%% macro myFirstTest %%
   %% toolbar %%
%% endmacro %%

will show the default toolbar, while:

%% macro mySecondTest %%
   %% use toolbar %%
%% endmacro %%

will show a new toolbar macro defined in the webx.tpl file.
