"If you find yourself doing the same task over and over again in LibreOffice (or OpenOffice.org), you need to learn about macros. Whether it's inserting the same text over and over, formatting text, or any other task where multiple keystrokes or actions are necessary you can save time by creating a macro. LibreOffice (and OpenOffice.org before it) include an outstanding Macro tool that allows you to quickly create and manage macros that will ease the burden of repetitive tasks.

"Many users will see the word "Macro" and want to run screaming or break down weeping at the thought of having to actually "write a macro." We're not programmers! Good news — with LibreOffice (or OpenOffice.org), you don't have to write a single piece of script. The open source office suites have a simple to use Macro recording engine as well as a fine tool to keep all of your macros organized for easy access."
