Macro code debug step through with values visible by hovering over the variable name

When I debug macro code, I liked the feature that allowed me to view the contents of variables by just hovering over the variable while stepping through the code. After version 5 that seems to have disappeared and I’m an “Old dog” that is hard at learning new tricks. Can you tell me how I can load LibreOffice Calc versntuion 5 into Lubuntu 18.04?


With LibreOffice v7.0.3.1 currently installed on Ubuntu 20.4 there is no problem with a mouse hover. Value is shown. Do not know of a setting that would affect this.
