Summary0014558: Enhance Macro usage by making them easier to find
DescriptionCurrently Lazarus supports various macros in path and filenames[1]. But
to be able to use it, you need to first go look in the help to see what
macros are available.

A popular example is [2] below...

Anyway, my thoughts were that maybe we can add a "insert macro" popup
menu / button next to any EditBox where paths or filenames are entered -
and where macros can be used. See the attached image, where a product
named PINs use this idea. Now the user doesn't need to refer to help
files are try and remember all available macros.
