On Linux or Windows you have now to enable Tools Options LibreOffice Advanced Enable macro recording

Mac equivalent: LibreOffice Preferences

As I recall it had to be in ToolsOptionsLibreOfficeGeneral.

Unless you do not have the choice of version, I advise you to upgrade to a newer version because the latter provide security fixes in addition to bug fixes and new features.
