# Steps to reproduce
1. Open lowriter or localc
2. Go to Tools → Macros → Organize Macros → Python…
In the new window the "Create" button should be active, so a user can create a macro.
"Create" button is grayed out.
# Additional information
This looks very bad: there's at least a question on StackOverflow about it with 21k views https://stackoverflow.com/questions/21413664/how-to-run-python-macros-in-libreoffice
issue seems to be inherited from OpenOfffice
Konstantin, unfortunately for using Python macroses in LO, you shoud install APSO extension https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/apso-alternative-script-organizer-for-python

Thanks, so, for this menu to work this extension needs to be shipped with LO out-of-the-box then?
Xisco/Heiko: from UI point of view, if Python macro isn't provided out-of-the-box, shouldn't Python menu entry be removed by default?
Indeed an extension can add an entry and at least we wouldn't have a disabled button by default. I had also searched how to use this feature and had given up.
Vast majority of systems has Python installed. Please, just distribute the extension necessary to make it work by default. The extension doesn't weight too much, or does it?

You still can _Run_ the macro. Or edit. So hiding the entry makes no sense to me.
I would rather not distinguish between the languages at the menu and have Run, Edit (could also be started from the Organize dialog), and Organize there. And at the Run/Organize dialog we could have a filter for the different types.

Sorry, I meant removing "Create" button in Python part.
