When the Macro recorder is stopped, we immediately get the option to name the Macro but there is no option to assign a keyboard shortcut. To assign a keyboard shortcut to the Macro, we have to go back to the macro and select assign to get the menu to assign keyboard shortcuts. Since keyboard shortcuts are the most common way to use Macros, the option to assign a keyboard shortcut should be presented right at the time the Macro stops recording. It should not be a 2-step process.

Hi, as this is an Office wide feature, spreadsheet is the wrong component. I set it to framework and assign it accordingly. Frank

I strongly agree with the feature request. I am an avid user of macros in Microsoft Word and Emacs. I just attempted my first assignment of a keyboard shortcut to a macro. It was painful. I first tried to just use the menus to assign the shortcut. Gave up. Then switched to the help files. Gave up again. Googled for a web page and finally found one that explains how to do it. The interface is quite confusing. For example in OO.o 2.0.4, there are menus: Tools > Macros > Organize Macros Tools > Macros > Organize Dialogs For a new user, this is confusing. Then I learn that I need to use Tools > Customize > Keyboard But where are the macros? Oh, sure easy to find. NOT. They are in the Category box, under OpenOffice.org Macros > user > Standard > Module1. (Further nit-pick. On MS Windows, these dialogs are not re-sizeable and show only a tiny amount of text in the "Category" window that is hard to read.) Then I try to click on my named macro and look for a button "assign key". No luck. Oh, you first have to click on the key in the Shortcut key box, then click on macro name. Wow. This entire process is incredibly difficult for me to remember. It would be much more preferable to simply assign a key at the same time as assigning the name.

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