To be able to use the Macro recorder you need to activate Experimental feautres. You do this opening the menu "Tools - Options" (on Mac it's the menu "LibreOffice - Preferences"). In the dialog open "LibreOffice - General" and at the bottom you find a check-box that says Enable experimental (unstable) features. This should be activated.

When this is activated then you'll find the menu entry "Tools - Macros - Record Macro" and you should be able to continue following the instructions in help.

Let us know if you run into any more issues with this.

Using LO-writer Version (Build ID: e29a214), the unhelpful "help" says that in order to record a macro, one should: Choose *Tools - Macros - Record Macro*.

Under *Tools - Macros -- *there are just 3 live options: *Run Macro -- Organize Macros -- Organize Dialogs. *A fourth, "Digital Signature", is grayed out.

There is no *Record *facility, either at the expected menu level, or under *Run*or *Organize*.

It is hard to see the relevance, but for completeness:this is all happening on an Acer laptop running Curtains 7; 2 GHz P6100; 3 mB L3 cache; 4 gB.

If one ever managed to generate a macro, then there would be this problem: "*To save the macro, first select the object where you want the macro to be saved in the Save macro in list box.*" What is an "object" in this context? Is it what we would know as a subdirectory, or is there yet another new level of understanding to be mastered here?
