2.4.2 The Edit Menu
The Edit pull-down menu contains the Undo, Cut, Copy, Paste, and Clear
menu items. When you select a menu item, Emacs executes the equivalent

selection. They appear faded until you select a block of text

End Macro Recording
Selecting this tells emacs to stop remembering your keystrokes.
This is the same as the Emacs command `end-kbd-macro' (`C-x )').
Execute Last Macro
Selecting this item will cause emacs to re-interpret all of the
keystrokes which were saved between selections of the Start Macro
Recording and End Macro Recording menu items. This is the same as
the Emacs command `call-last-kbd-macro' (`C-x e').
