Description pierre-yves samyn 2013-03-27 08:23:56 UTC

Steps to reproduce:

1. File> New> Spreadsheet (but same with an existing one)
2. Display the Drawing toolbar (if it is not already)
3. Select the Rectangle tool and draw (but same with another tool)
4. Right-click the object and then "Assign Macro", dialog

Expected Result: The list "Macros" at the bottom left should
display the tree "My Macros", "Macros Libo", "Untitled 1"

Actual result: the list is empty

List "existing Macros" is empty even when the spreadsheet contains macros.

- Same to assign a macro to a picture
- "ImageMap" suffers from the same problem (which would have been a workaround for pictures)

Verified (qa-fr) with:

Windows 7:
.Version (Build ID: 7e5467ff8f30d821f4fbf69cb2769163eb64c2c)
.Version (Build ID: 8e658ca263808d3466c62b2acfc82d61901fa57
.  (Build ID: 2a2ada8fcfeb18b91599a8fb09f3c2081e66abe)

.Version (Build ID: 7e5467ff8f30d821f4fbf69cb2769163eb64c2c)

This still works with: portable (long delay before the list fills) (long delay before the list fills)

Operating System: All
Version: rc

Already [Reproducible] with server  installation of  "LOdev   -  ENGLISH UI / German Locale  [Build ID: 6d4a55bf38a1c470c49f904dbbddf94eb2f6154)]"  {tinderbox: Win-x86@6, pull time 2012-12-17 08:36:40} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with own separate User Profile 

Was still OK  with  parallel installation of  "LOdev   -  French UI / German Locale  [Build ID: 87906242e87d3ddb2ba9827818f2d1416d80cc7)]"  {tinderbox: @6, pull time 2012-12-06} on German WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) with separate /4 User Profile for Master Branch
