The message automation line displays a window with a specified message and an OK button.
Message can show most of the properties of Layers/Project/Items/Keyframes/markers/files/folders combined with a custom text.
In this example the message combines a static part that was written as a custom value "Finished processing this layer -" and a dynamic part that marked in yellow on the photo "Shape Layer 7", this name is taken automatically from the layer "name" property.
