So, I see that on ask libreoffice this has come up twice and both times
closed out (without an answer) or left unanswered.

There is an old forum post on this that might help in your case. You can
find it here: but that is
back form 2012.

By any chance had you been using the Record Macro feature also?

Best wishes,

I selected some all capitalized text in a title, wanting to make a macro to
change it to initial caps. Ran the macro, stopped it and it worked. Went to
the macros under "My macros" in the library to assign a shortcut key.

I couldn't find the macro but found a whole new Folder named with the Title
I'd selected. Worse yet was a folder with the title of another document I'd
started. I couldn't find any way to delete either of them.

And even worse, when I looked at "My Macros" they were all gone.

Searched online and there were a couple of questions from people who had
lost all their macros, but they weren't answered. One was closed by a
moderator because (something like) it was untimely. Don't quote me on that.
Whatever it didn't seem the reason for closing it was valid.

I will uninstall and reinstall Libre Office, just losing one template I
made since my macros are gone. But can anyone tell me what I did to cause
those new folders? My macors were simple but convenient, and I can create
them again.
