If you have multiple Reflection sessions running legacy Extra! or Reflection Basic macros simultaneously, and your macro displays a modal dialog box (a dialog box that requires user interaction), you may run into problems. When a macro in the first session displays a modal dialog box, the macro in the second session stops processing.


To resolve this issue, load multiple Reflection workspaces. For example, rather than running two sessions in one workspace, load two workspaces with a session each.
