CC'ing Noel on this.

Noel - thoughts? This macro does not work and looks quite complicated. Is it a bug, enhancement, or ??

the macros not getting fired is definitely a bug
regarding execution of the macros that's entirely a different matter, api for example we haven't implemented yet is an enhancement

hi Noel and Nikolay,
can we label this as FIXED or the issue is still reproducible?

Hi Noel,

The three buttons are launching the macros.
Closing this as fixed, because that is the stated issue, and it has a working patch. Tested in LO 7.5 master.
