Description tommy27 2008-12-21 12:34:28 UTC
it would be great to have the macro recorder function work in the Impress 
application as well (actualli is available in Writer and Calc only). 
it would make things a lot easier.

Draw also lacks macro recorder (see issue
show_bug.cgi?id=89609 ) however i think this feature would be much useful to be 
implemented in Impress first.

Comment 8 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-04 21:21:19 UTC
The macro recorder that we unfortunately added to OOo was built on some very old
code of StarOffice in the pre-OOo area. By just polishing it a bit it was
possible to get a somewhat usable recorder with a few weeks or work. The
corresponding code in Impress never existed, so we had to implement it from
scratch. This is a feature that we don't see so important that the effort to
implement it now is justified, given the fact that there are a lot of more
important things in Impress to implement.

i see. thank you for answers. i thought the same macro recorder that works in 
Writer and Calc could work on Impress as well. i was probably wrong.

I found that some macros recorded with Calc macro recorder may work with 
Impress as well.

It is a kind of workaround, you record the macro in Calc then you use it in
