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 v184.108.40.206 on my Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon workstation.
I will update to Linux Mint 17.x shortly.
