    Hi Jenna!

    I'm not sure what you mean by "pipe text". Where do you want to send that information once it's extracted from the ticket?

    Might not be best place to post - but Facebook message integration - using a macro to respond, it populates into the message " <p> [comment] <p> " - this actually is included when sent, and seen form the customer side of things.

    How can this be fixed?

    Hey Conza,

    It it looks like Claudia replied to your other post here.

    I would recommend checking to make sure you have a plain text version of your macro as Facebook does not support rich text.

    Hi There,

    When I insert an inline image or image attachment into a macro, the image orientation changes from portrait to landscape. The image width is 600px and the original orientation is portrait. 

    Any ideas?


    UPDATE: I changed the size to 500px wide and are no longer having issues. Solved myself :-) Good on me!

    I think it would improve the clarity of this article if you mention that custom roles can create shared macros too if assigned that permission inside the Shared macros section as well. I know it's briefly noted at the beginning but it's slightly confusing when it says only admins can do it when you go into detail below, especially since thats the section that is supposed to go into detail. This is related to the "Creating personal or shared macros for tickets (administrators)" header. Perhaps something like..

    "Administrators (or other custom roles) can create macros that are shared by all Zendesk support agents...."

    Just a thought!

    Thanks for sharing Ryan!

    I'll pass this feedback along to our documentation team to see if we can get this added :)
