Macro that edit targets name

So I have a macro/script that ads a name of the target in another macro specified in the code to cast Tricks of the Trade on that target.

1).
Lua Code:
  1. /run T = UnitName("target")
  2. /run if not InCombatLockdown() then EditMacro('Tricks', nil, nil, '/cast [@'.. T ..',exists]Tricks of the Trade', nil); print('Tricks_Setup: ' .. T); end;
2).
Lua Code:
  1. /cast [@Plopek,exists]Tricks of the Trade
I would like to be able to add another "/cast Shadowstrike" line like you would normally do by pressing enter - so it would look like that after pressing first macro:

Lua Code:
  1. /cast [@Plopek,exists]Tricks of the Trade
  2. /cast Shadowstrike

Does anyone know if that possible?
Thank you in advance.

I've been able to figure it out myself after quick search on StackOverflow - \n acts as enter.
Lua Code:
  1. /run T = UnitName("target")
  2. /run if not InCombatLockdown() then EditMacro('Tricks', nil, nil, '/cast [@'.. T ..',exists]Tricks of the Trade\n/cast Shadowstrike', nil); print('Tricks_Setup: ' .. T); end;

Can you not use focus for this? You set focus using a keybind then write a macro to target it.
Code:
/cast [@focus,help,nodead] Tricks of the Trade
/cast Shadowstrike
This is similar to what I do for hunter Misdirection.
I have the intended tank set as focus at all times and use the macro as posted.

Focus doesn't really work for me in this case, because I use it for interrupts.

Thanks for the input, tho

Change it to @target then, instead of @focus.

Yeah, why are you not using @target if you just want it to be the name of your target anyway?

From what I see, they're using the two macros as an extra pseudo-focus.
