Automating activity entry

Status: Available in ACT! 2011

For most of my Act! work, I enter an activity, usually a to-do, then clear it and add a follow-up.  There is so much repetition that macros would be a great help--we use Act! 2009, v. 11.  Also, a macro would help when entering a new contact 'cause the cursor always goes to the address field, and I typically like to start at Contact--small detail, but that's the way things are arranged & a macro correcting cursor placement would help (unless there's an easier way).  Thanks!
