2016-10-29 20:31:02 +0200 asked a question Is it possible to customize icons for macros?

Description of the problem:

Since LibreOffice Calc didn't come with a toolbar for Macro's I created one using:

[menu --> tools --> customize --> toolbars --> add --> new]

...and named it "Macro"

To this macro toolbar I added the following built in menu items:

  • Interrupt Macro
  • LibreOffice Basic
  • LibreOffice Basic Macro Organizer
  • Organize Macros
  • Record Macro
  • Run Macro
  • Stop Macro
  • Stop Recording

Of the above menu items only "Record Macro" and "Stop Macro" have icons. The icons for the rest of the above listed menu items are missing. This makes for a very large toolbar since it is mostly represented in text.

Adding icons for each of these is trivial

[by selecting the menu item --> modify --> drop down list --> change icon]

After selecting "Change Icon" from the above mentioned steps, a frame pops open with a grid of available icons. I would like to make copy one of the icons shown in this grid so I can modify it.

Subject Question Clarified:

  1. Is it possible to make a copy of one of the icons in the above mentioned grid, and if so how? If nothing else I guess I could take a screen shot and modify that, but it would be much better to have direct access to the icon itself if at all possible.
  2. Does LibreOffice have an official repository just for the menu icons that others have proposed or created?

Thanks for the help.

I'm developing an extension and would like to read posts made by other developers before asking any technical questions of my own.

Does such a community exist?

Sometimes removing or uninstalling the older software first, before installing the newer version can help.

Can you please also provide the name of the Operating System you are using and its version? Also, does the installation process just vanish without any error messages or do you get some warning or error before that happens? If so can you please post the error or warning messages you may be receiving?
