    Default How delete libre office macros?

    Hi,

    I have some documents that I created years ago from wizards (letter
    wizzard, I think). Well, when I open this letter it says that it has
    macros. I want to remove them.

    I go to Toos -> macros -> organize -> libre

    In the dialog, I click "organize". On the document, I expand, and I see:

    Standard (empty)
    ~Autopilot (empty)

    And the delete button remains grayed.
    This on the three tabs: modules, dialogs, libraries.

    How can I find and delete those macros?

    Thanks, but that is to delete an existing macro by name. My macro do not
    show in the listing, there is no name to remove. What I have is the empty
    library "standard". It is the library itself what I should delete.

    Nevertheless, I did what that advice said, nothing happened. I run it a
    second time, LO crashed.

    I'm almost afraid to write this, it's too simple.

    In the help section, concerning macros, it says you have to migrate old marcos before you can do anything with them. Search Migrate Macros in LO help screens.

    I would never thought of that.


    But it says “The Database Document Macro Migration Wizard moves existing
    macros from sub-documents of an old Base file into the new Base file's
    macro storage area.”

    It is for databases, not write documents.



    And anyway, I do no have macros in the document! But it still says there
    are macros when I open it.

    What happens if you create a new macro in the document and save the doc with it? Perhaps that will get rid of the ghost macro? HTH Lenwolf

    Unzip the file there are 2-3 files in a zip that makes up the doc. for the most part the formatting is human readable thus editable.

    Yes, I know, xml inside, but I'm afraid I would break things if I do. It is
    easier, I think, to create a new document and copy over the elements I
    want. I thought there would be a magic solution to erase all macros, like
    exporting a file without macros for sending over internet. When I open the
    file I have the option to disable the macros, but I don't see an equivalent
    one to save without macros.

    I gave up.

    I created another document, and copied the needed sections from the one
    with macros. Success, of a kind.

    The document is an empty letter, with my address, and a box to type the
    destination address at the exact place so that when I fold the paper the
    address shows through the transparent window in the envelope. That, and
    that the first page has different headers than the second page, are the
    only complex things in the document.

    The initial document was created years ago with a wizard. The macros are
    probably remains from that wizard, which should not be in the final
    document at all.

    So, problem solved, kind of.
