Description:I was trying to make the following macro that would allow a user to make a menu selection. As of now when I use it and make a selection when a digit is pressed it goes to the context that sent it to the macro and it looks for that digit in that context (the one that sent the call to the macro):

Exten => 123,1,Macro(voice-file,open,s,1,closed,s,1)

exten => s,1,Set(TIMEOUT(response)=5)
exten => s,2,Background(${ARG1})

exten => 1,1,Goto(${ARG2},${ARG3},${ARG4})

exten => 2,1,Goto(${ARG5},${ARG6},${ARG7})

Dovid: thanks for filing the report, but the bug tracker is not the best tool for feature requests without patches. I suggest the following:
1) Attempt to develop the feature yourself;
2) Mail the asterisk-users list to see if anyone is interested developing this feature;
3) If you have any funds available, please post a bounty for this feature on wiki at voip-info.org.
4) If, as a result of above steps, you have a disclaimed patch for latest trunk (new features don't go into release brances), please ask a bug-marshall or developer on #asterisk-bugs IRC channel or asterisk-dev mailing list to reopen this issue and attach the patch for review.
