Is there a macro to save automatically ? By that I mean: striking Ctrl+S in my stead. Often I am so concentrated that in one entire day I forget to save. I lost several times my work. I can't believe there is no way with macros to do that.

i saw there is a setting to turn AutoSave on/off here: menu Tools:Options:LibreOffice:Advanced:Expert Configuration then doubleclick on org.openoffice.Office.Common:Save:Document:AutoSave there you can doubleclick on the value to set it on/off there below you can also specify the autosave time interval in minutes.

you can also turn AutoSave on for AutoRecovery: menu Tools:Options:Load/Save:General:Save:Save AutoRecovery information every 10 minutes
