Description schulten 2003-05-30 00:30:06 UTC
when I click Tools-Macro-Record in Beta2, nothing happens. No stop recording window, no macro dialog comes up.

Seems ok in Linux...

I found the reason. I tried to record the action to click a Function- Input field and to enter some text in there. Nothing is recorded for that, so nothing is stored and no macro dialog comes up. This is very irritating, it should pop up a message "nothing was recorded, do you really want to stop recording". Changed to Enhancement for 2.0

Hi Dietrich, Your description is not entirely clear to me. Is the float not coming up at all or does it just close without notice when nothing is recorded? When clicking on Tools->Macro->Record a tiny float appears (this in fact happens, i just tested it). If nothing is recorded (this happens frequently, since lots of functinality simply is not implemented at this time) the float closes without further notice. In the current state of the macro recorder this works as designed. I'll change the summary to something more precise and reassign it.

I cannot reproduce the problem that no stop recording float window appears, although it *was* my original problem. Anyway, I would still like to propose a dialog that informs the user that nothing could be recorded yet. In my case I first thought I had used the recorder in a wrong way and looked for a menu option to save the macro. It never occured to me that nothing was recordable. Maybe an alternative would be to store an empty macro. But a message box "Nothing could be recorded, do you really want to stop recording?" is clearer, if you ask me.

According to the OpenOffice.org roadmap (http://tools.openoffice.org/releases) this issue was retargeted to OOo Later.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on my owner to the owner "requirements".
