Can a user set defaults for a macro?

Some users want to always create a macro with particular defaults.  For example, with the code macro:

  • Code default "Python"
  • "Show line numbers"
  • "Emacs mode" 

Every time. 

Is there a trick to have these settings saved?  Perhaps a way to create a URL link that inserts the macro with those default values set?

The only way I can think of to do that would be to make a user macro that reads parameters from the URL and then invoked the macro you want to use from that user macro.

Macros don't by default read parameters from the URL.

Just make a user macro to wrap the code macro and default the parameters in the user macro.
