Tips for using BridenBot:
-Make frequent use of CHECK to verify that you are on the correct screen before taking action.
-Set up a RECORD loop by putting it between SET and RESET to record multiple actions in a row.
-Record an action by placing the mouse cursor along the top edge of the screen.
-Stop BridenBot by placing the mouse cursor along the left edge of the screen.
-Wake BridenBot up by placing the mouse cursor in the upper left corner of the screen.
-If your computer is slow add a short PAUSE before taking the next action.
-Make sure the scale of your screen is set to 100% otherwise mouse coordinates may be incorrect.
-Colors may change slightly with window size.  Keep window sizing consistent when using SCAN.
-Improperly formatted or blank instructions will cause BridenBot to exit and close.
-Place an "X" before an instruction to cause BridenBot to skip over it.
-Add a short note after an instruction in order to help remember what it was supposed to do.
-Make use of a browser's "find on page" functionality to automatically find and select a link or button.
-Not every key can be typed or pressed directly.  Use COMBO for certain key presses.
-Avoid creating an inescapable loop by using PAUSE to allow for time to move the mouse if necessary.
-Be patient.  Planning out every click in a process takes careful thought and time.
