I got the G510 for Christmas and I'm trying to macro abilities to the Gkeys while logged into World of Warcraft. I started by trying to assign an ability to the G1 key instead of assigning a series of macros to numerous Gkeys.
- I'm logged into World of Warcraft
- I press the "MR" key and then press "G1"
- Then I press the "enter" key, type "/use levitate" and then press "enter" again
- Press the "MR" key which casts levitate
Since the ability casts when I'm done recording the macro, I feel I've recorded the macro correctly. The problem is, when I press the "G1" key again the ability casts or posts the spell name in /say like this http://imgur.com/v09Mr or brings up random windows like the character window, etc.
This is my first keyboard of this type but I'm very familiar with the SteelSeries World of Warcraft gaming mouse. I tried several Google searches to learn how to marco a WOW ability to the Gkeys and found nothing helpful.
Solved! Go to Solution.

You probably need to make a normal macro with delays included. The problem you are having is when enter is pressed, the game doesn't open up the chat dialog fast enough for it to register the / key. If you make a normal macro, you can record a small delay and then it'll work.

Adding a delay worked, thank you for the reply.
Here's an image showing where I inserted the delay if anyone is interested http://i.imgur.com/UPd9g.png and the steps are below.
- Log into World of Warcraft
- Press the "MR" key and then press the "G1" key or whatever key you want to macro
- Then press the "enter" key, type for example "/use fade" and then press "enter" again
- Press the "MR" key which casts spell (i.e. fade)
- Now the macro is recorded
- After recording the macro in-game, launch the Logitech G-series Key Profiler
- Left click on the Gkey you want to edit
- Select "Assign Macro" > "Edit Macro" and then the Marco Manager Launches
- The macro associated with that Gkey is shown.
- Just after "Enter" select the "/" then right click and select "Insert Delay"
- The delay is inserted just above "/" so right click on the delay timer, select "Edit" and change the time to "009" then hit "Enter"
