Description helmerj 2003-06-27 15:03:30 UTC
When I use the macro recorder to record the reformating of a page in writer (or an object in draw), it record the opening of the formating dialog (e.g. Format> Page) but it does not record the choices made in the dialog itself (like chnaing the Format of th epage rom A4 to letter). Running the macro opens the dialog just fine but that's it. Same happens in draw, when I try to chnage the property of a text box from "adjust width to text" to "adjust to frame". The dialog pops up but it doesn't do the requested changes. OO1.1b2 on Mandrake Linux 9.1 Juergen

Hi Mathias, Don't know what component this should be against do you? sounds like another area where options not picked up by macro recorder :-(
Comment 3 Mathias_Bauer 2003-06-30 14:10:38 UTC
There is no macro recorder in Draw, so in Draw there is no issue. The writer dialog is - of course :-) - a problem in writer.

Almost a year later, and this bug is *still* not fixed. This is a deal-breaker for me, I can't recommend this software to anyone as a result of something so basic not functioning properly. Not to mention that OOo crashed 5 times during the first 10 minutes that I tried to use it. I'll probably be uninstalling OOo pretty soon. Oh...WinXP SP1, OOo 1.1.1, quite recent JVM. Thank you, :) tom

This bug was reproduces under widows XP OO.org 2.0 (2.0) and also under FC4 OO.org 2.0 (1.9.125) It seems that macro recorder does not preserve any operations that involves using the mouse. The following case were tried using mouse (only) and keyboard (only): Test #1: 1.Open Tools menu and choose record macro. 2.Select writer window and type something. 3.Using mouse select a section (or all) of the typed text. 4.Using mouse open the font colour chooser and change the colour. 5.Stop the macro recording and save your macro. 6.Open the saved macro. When the saved macro is opened is it observed that font colour has not changed and is black. If you follow the same procedure and change the font-face, size and style using mouse you will see that the same thing happens (the font-face, size and style are not preserved in the saved version). Now if you do all the above procedures but use the keyboard for selection (shift+arrow keys) you will see that the recorder records all the changes and in the recorded version you could see different colours, font-faces, etc. A very similar case happens if you change the caret position using mouse, that is if in the writer page, while recording macro, you type something in the first line, say â€œThisâ€ and then go to the second line and type â€œis aâ€ and then go back to first line using the mouse and type â€œbugâ€ and save the macro. In the save version you will see â€œThisâ€ in the first line and â€œis a bugâ€ in the second line. But if you do the same thing using arrow keys you will see â€œThis bugâ€ in the first line and â€œis aâ€ in the second line, as expected.
