Description philmperry 2003-08-07 22:00:21 UTC
When defining macros in OOo 1.1 Beta 2 spreadsheet, the last action in the macro
recording (before pressing the end recording button) is to press the "OK" button
on a dialog. In this case I was trying a simple macro to set the spreadsheet to
print in landscape mode. The problem is that when the macro is executed, it
stops on the last step and presents the dialog, forcing the user to manually
press the "OK" button on the dialog. The earlier steps of getting to the print
setup dialog, and the pressing of the "landscape" radio button were done
correctly; it's just that the last step was skipped.

Hi Philmperry,

your way of setting the page orientation uses the system printer
settings dialog. This will never work, we cannot record actions taken
in dialogs outside the office.

The bad news is: Using Format / Page / Landscape will not work either
at this point. 

NN: This replaces #101410, i close the internal issue.

Setting to "New"

Reassign to NN.
Comment 5 niklas.nebel 2003-09-16 11:14:24 UTC
Accepting, but don't expect any quick progress. There are currently no
plans to extend the coverage of the macro recorder.
