I recently moved my LO user profile to a new computer, but my Calc
macros were not to be found. I had to recreate them. I am about to
repeat this move with another computer. I REALLY want to move my macros
also, but somehow my backups is not catching them.

Please - where are they stored?
Here's what I replied:
Mine seem to be located at ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/basic/
In ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/basic/Standard I find my own global
macros. They are stored in XML format with file suffixes like xba, xlb,
xlc, xdl …
The xdl files are for dialogues, by the way.

I'm running Manjaro. I guess it could be slightly different in other
operating systems.

My LO templates spent years being in a subdirectory in the
~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/  structure but after an update (system or
LO, I can't remember now) they all apparently disappeared. Hunting around,
I found them in my home root directory  ~/Templates/

I upgrade relatively often and mine are still in
I don't remember if that was also true when I had Ubuntu (I'm on Manjaro
since 2016 or so), though.

Kind regards

I don't recall ever having moved them there (but I cannot exclude it 100%)
but it seems as good a place as any.
