If you are in break mode, you cannot start a macro or subroutine with a shortcut key. When you press the shortcut key, although the insertion point flashes as if the macro has been run, the macro is not started.


While you can use shortcut keys to start a macro, you cannot use them to continue it. If you want to call a subroutine while you are in break mode, you must call it manually by entering the name of the subroutine in the Immediate pane of the Debug window.

This is by design.
