I already use LO macros which I have written using Basic. I tried to record a macro using keystrokes:

>>>> From help file

LibreOffice can record commands executed with the keyboard and mouse in Writer and Calc


   Open the document for which you want to record a macro.


   Choose Tools - Macros - Record Macro.

   If Tools - Macros - Record Macro menu item is missing, make sure
   that macro recording feature is enabled in Tools - Options-
   LibreOffice - Advanced.

   You will see the small Recording dialogue box with just one button
   called Stop Recording.


   Perform the actions you want to be recorded in the document.

   Press the Escape key to deselect an object, as the macro recorder
   currently does not record this action by mouse click.


   Click Stop Recording.

   The Macro dialogue box appears, in which you can save and run the macro

5.  >>>>>>>>>

The macro recording feature is enabled and all goes as in the help file until I click stop recording, when I get no dialogue box. I have tried restarting without success.

What am I doing wrong, please?
