I was frustrated by how long it took to simply open the Basic editor (i.e. mousing to Menu, Tools, Macros, Organize Macros, LibreOffice Basic...)

At first I thought I might be able to create a macro to jump right in, but I found a simpler solution.

You just need to assign a function key to the right thing. Go to: Tools | Customize | Keyboard tab:

Select a shortcut key, select a Function Category & Function, and click Modify button

Category    Function                            key* Comment
----------- ----------------------------------- ---- ----------------------------------
Application Edit Macros                         F2 - Edit Basic code

BASIC       Organize Macros                     F3 - Edit Library and Module names
BASIC       LibreOffice Basic                   F4 - Run/Assign/Edit/Delete Modules
BASIC       LibreOffice Basic Macro Organizer      - (Not useful)

*This is what I chose, you can pick your own key

Then just hit F2 and you're in.

Now does anyone know how to get it to open the last Library/Module that you were editing? It always seems to jump to a fixed one for me.

Hi

I was frustrated by how long it took to simply open the Basic editor (i.e. mousing to Menu, Tools, Macros, Organize Macros, LibreOffice Basic

I use the default keyboard shortcut Alt + F11

how to get it to open the last Library/Module that you were editing?

Apart from storing the name somewhere I do not see ...

Ok, now I see, in other various windows F2 is taken. I'll try the Alt-F11.
