The built-in Macro recording functionality is really unreliable, buggy and awful. The feature is marked 'experimental' and disabled by default because of this.
Fixing it properly is a huge chunk of work; nevertheless people seem to want this feature and file bugs.
I'd like to clean those up by marking them duplicates of this bug, so we at least have those requests & issues archived.
*** Bug 61528 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

If you have time, please do the following:
Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.1 or later): https://www.libreoffice.org/download/
If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior

Update the version field

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)
2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

When I stop recording I must save the recording as some name I must enter. If I want to replay the macro I must navigate to and select the macro I just created.
When I 'stop recording' I can immediately replay the macro through some key or click.
If I later want to save this macro I can give it a name and location in the macro tree.
'Stop recording' will assign a temporary name and link it to the 'Replay' event. 'Start recording' discards, without warning, any previous record.
