    Default Is it possible to record a macro in libreoffice?

    I recently noticed that my libreoffice doesn't have the "Record Macro" voice that used to be in OpenOffice Tools -> Macros.
    Is that normal or have I installed libreoffice incorrectly?

    how could anyone answer if you installed LibreOffice correctly or not if
    you didn't tell us how you installed it??

    so, while i can't actually answer your question directly, i can tell you
    that in openSUSE 11.4 i used YaST to remove OpenOffice and tjem install
    LibreOffice 3.3.1 OOO330m19 (Build:8) and it has a Tools > Macros
    section in the menu..

    so, i _guess_ maybe you didn't install LibreOffice the same way i did...

    Sorry if I provided too little info. I thought it was enough at the moment.

    I removed OpenOffice with yast and them installed libreoffice in my opensuse 11.3 some months ago.
    My libreoffice has a Tools -> Macros section as yours. What it doesn't have is "Record macro" in that section as OpenOffice used to have.

    Really my question was not about my installation. It was: is it possible to record a macro in libreoffice?
    If your answer is "yes", then I'll conclude on my own that my installation is incomplete. This was my reasoning. Sorry if I didn't explain it well.

    Could you (or somebody else) tell me if you have "Record macro" in Tools -> Macros?
    Thanks anyway.

    Don't worry. I've learnt some many things from your posts, that I couldn't complain even if the misunderstanding had been serious (which is not the case).

    According to what I found googling, "Record macro" should be available if you check "Enable experimental features" in Tools -> Options -> General
    But, unfortunately that's not the case. But I understand that it works in libreoffice for Windows
    Thanks anyway, djh-novell
