LibreOffice is an outstanding substitute for Microsoft 365.  The only thing that I dislike about it is that it does not have a macro function.  It is not the only office suite to miss this feature or to have an unworkable technique.

 

I remember the days of WordPerfect and OpenOffice (LibreOffice's previous incarnation) and those programs made macro creation easy.  When someone wants to do repetitive tasks, macros are the only reasonable approach.

 

Is there an add-on product that could solve that problem?

Aurel2015 here,

 

Thank you very much for your extremely prompt and detailed answer.  Unfortunately...it is still cumbersome.  Is it possible to record a macro, always in the same location, and assign that location a keyboard shortcut (not used by any other function) say Alt + Ctl + A.

 

This way, I can create a macro, run it with the shortcut.  Then I can create another macro, which overwrites the first one and can still be run with the shortcut.

 

Thanks again for your patience and attention.

Sorry, I don't know what you mean by recording a macro in the same location. As far as binding a key combination to a macro does this video solve your issue? It's for Ubuntu and Libre Office 3 but should be the same for Windows and 4.

I hope that I did not accidentally send my incomplete answer.

 

First of all thank you for solving my problem.  You were extremely efficient.

 

More important, you introduced me to a tremendous source, Yahoo.  I did not think that this would be a large source of instructional videos on a software product so little known in North America (too bad for us).  That was the real treasure of this interraction.

 

Again thank you...problem solved
