In ancient times, that other suite of office software had features that would enable --- create a macro record of a document creation and edit process --- save the macro into a document template --- replay the macro when "New Document" selected using that template that other office suite used a dialect of Basic for macro programming.

So far, I cannot find similar features within LibreOffice Writer. The ability to record a live document creation and editing session was extremely useful.

I'm running LibreOffice v4.0.2.2 on my Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon workstation. I will update to Linux Mint 17.x shortly.

Thanks, ~~~ 0;-Dan
