function key_macro()
    -- macro only works for documents
    local document = is_document()

    if document > 0 then
        screen_update_disable()

        -- save the current cursor
        cursor_save()

        current = get_char_at()
        previous = '\0'

        if get_cursor_pos() > 1 then
            previous = get_char_at(get_line_pos(),get_cursor_pos()-1)
        end

        -- position the cursor for the brace match that follows
        if current  == string.byte('(') or
           current  == string.byte('<') or
           current  == string.byte('[') or
           current  == string.byte('{') then

             MarkBlockReset()
         else
            -- restore the cursor as no matching brace was found
            cursor_restore()
            MarkHide()
