Goto Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced. Enable macro recording. OK
In Calc enter some values.
Start Macro recording. That is in Tools > Macros > Record Macro. A little window opens with a 'Stop Recording' icon.
Do something, e.g.
Use Strg+ * (in numpad). That should mark the range with the entered data.
Use Arrow keys. That should move the cell cursor.
Use Arrow keys combined with Shift-key. That should mark a range.
Press some number or character keys. That should fill the current cell.
None of these work.
Click 'Stop Recording'. No macro is recorded.
It acts, as if the keyboard is disabled.
Do the same in LibreOffice 5.4 to see how it should work.
I see the error in Version: 184.108.40.206.0+ (x64)

I reported something similar in bug report# 143217. In Windows OS, your keyboard seems to be locked as soon as you click on Record Macro. To start a macro (after you clicked on Record) you must click on a command Icon in the Edit Tool Bar, such as Cut, Paste, Copy, etc. or click on (point to) a cell. You will be able to record the macro. (However, if you clicked on a cell, instead of an Icon, the macro will only aplly to that cell). This problem seems to exist only in the Windows version of Libreoffice.
*** Bug 143217 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I don't reproduce this. I see something recored in LO 6.4.0 and 7.4+.
Please retest, also with a clean profile.
I don't see any message about that someone can reproduce this bug. So the status should be UNCONFIRMED. There is also question to Regina, if the bug is present in the latest version, so I am setting the status to NEEDINFO. Adding Regina to CC list.
The locked keyboard still happens in Version: 18.104.22.168.alpha0+ (x64) / LibreOffice Community
