Macro to illustrate the problem
For several months now, shortcuts to macro activation do not work anymore. Quite annoying.
In Bugzilla I could not find this bug. Bug 103297 looks somewhat similar, but I am talking about LibreOffice documents, not Microsoft .doc documents. Strange that this bug has not been reported yet. Now, with the latest ArchLinux LibreOffice still 220.127.116.11.0+ (18.104.22.168 ArchLinux build-1) just released and the problem not solved, I write this bug report. Of course the problem might only occur under ArchLinux, it might not happen under another Linux distribution or Windows, but I can only verify under ArchLinux, updated until the moment this bug was submitted.
With this bug report I have included an extremely simple macro to illustrate. Please install it and assign a shortcut as follows:
Tools | Customize | press LibreOffice top right | functions | LibreOffice Macros | user | Standard | Test | HelloWorld
Assign e.g. Alt-A (I always assign a shortcut containing the Alt key on a US keyboard layout) and do Modify.
Then open a new LibreOffice text document and press Alt-A. Nothing happens. Fortunately, the macro runs when you do
Tools | Macros | Run Macro | My Macros | Standard | .....
Under LibreOffice fresh 22.214.171.124.0+ (Build ID 5.2.2-2) the situation is different, but not any better in this context. There, after assigning the shortcuts to scripts, when you press a shortcut key combination, the corresponding script of the main toolbar is activated.
At the moment, on my machines, ArchLinux runs kernel version 4.8.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT. LibreOffice still runs on 2 PCs, LibreOffice fresh on a third PC.

I can confirm that assigning a macro to a short cut in the LibreOffice context doesn't work in 126.96.36.199 and not in a recent daily.
It does work in 188.8.131.52 > Regression.
In the context Writer (module that I tried) assigning the macro to a short cut does work.

In the meantime we are at:
LibreOffice still 184.108.40.206.0+ (ArchLinux: 220.127.116.11 ArchLinux Build-4). Not much different from the LibreOffice still version I used for the original bug description.
LibreOffice fresh 18.104.22.168 (ArchLinux Build 5.2.3-4)
Linux kernel 4.8.13-1-ARCH
Unfortunately the issues I have with the shortcut assignments to macros are still the same. LibreOffice still behaves differently from LibreOffice fresh in this respect. See original bug description.
Archlinux is now at the following package versions for LibreOffice: LibreOffice still (since today) has version 22.214.171.124, build 5.2.5-1 and LibreOffice fresh has the same version number (this may be an Archlinux decision).
Yes, the macro shortcuts have improved, but we're not there yet. Upon pressing a macro shortcut combination, my macro is now activated, but in addition the corresponding shortcut for the LibreOffice menu is also activated, so that a LibreOffice menu pops up while my macro is executed.

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.
There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.
If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
Please DO NOT
Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not
appropriate in this case)
If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from http://downloadarchive.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/old/
2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword

Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Yes, the bug is still present.
But I do not want to load you people with more work than absolutely necessary.
The problem described under Comment 3 still exists today in as well LibreOffice Still as LibreOffice Fresh (ArchLinux always uses latest versions). The bypass is very simple but irritating.
Although I'm virtually convinced that in an early version of LibreOffice (I don't even know what version anymore) the problem described in Comment 3 did not exist, I do not have those early versions of LibreOffice anymore, so I cannot prove anything.
Therefore, especially in the light of your Comment 4, it seems unreasonable to claim this bug any longer. So I changed the status to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME.
On this PC runs LibreOffice Still. The information from Help | About is:
Build ID: 5.4.5-1

Thank you for all the good work you people are doing on LibreOffice. It is a great program.
