Attached is a document with screenshots showing the current state of the macro;recording documentation, what the Tools-Macro menu looks like before 'experimental features' is activated, and after it is enabled.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open Help
2. Go to macros;recording
There is no mention of how to show the 'Record Macro' option under the menu Tools --> Macros. Searching the net shows that when 'Enable Experimental Features' is not chosen in the LibreOffice General Options then the option to record macros does not appear.
Mention that if the record macro does not appear that it is necessary to manually enable it. Suggested language for after the Limitations paragraph:
If the Record Macro is not visible or greyed out under Tools – Macros you will need to enable it in LibreOffice Options
- Choose Tools – Options to open the LibreOffice Optinos dialog window
- Navigate to LibreOffice – General and check the 'Enable experimental (unstable) features' option
