I'm trying to edit a keyboard macro using kmacro-step-edit-macro. The macro starts by isearching for a word.

C-s         ;; isearch-forward
binary_function     ;; self-insert-command * 15
RET         ;; newline

When stepping through the macro it only searches for the first letter in the word, after which it just inserts the rest into the buffer.
Am I using kmacro-step-edit-macro wrong? Is it broken?
I'm using emacs 26.1 on windows.

  • I'm also seeing this on linux 27.1. Looks broken to me. – Steve Nov 6 '20 at 1:35
