Hello all

"Error in scripting framework during Basic script execution"

"bla bla bla location"...

Is there a message uglier, scarier,and horrendous as this one above? Not
hard to imagine a legion of frightened users freezing and crisping jaws on
reading such cursing message!

Couldn't we write just "Oh dear, I am unable to find a macro you asked me to

What I would prefer to see on an error is:

<error for a dummy>
<error for a technical person>

Rather than just <error for a dummy>

The trick is to find a way to express the error such that a non-technical person is not horrified, yet, a technical person has a chance to find the actual problem. A dialog with a details button is great.

Now, that said, we would need to have a chat with the developers to make that happen
