New Help: Copy BASIC and PYTHON code to Clipboard on a Click

The next release for LibreOffice will have a small but handy improvement for every macro developer, either experienced or beginner.

Hover the mouse on BASIC and Python code in the new Help pages and a tip shows that when you click your mouse, the code exerpt is copied in the system clipboard. You can paste in the BASIC IDE (Integrated Development environment) or any other text application in your system.

With this little feature, you save time of typing the exerpt to test in your IDE or document. Another alternative was to use a collateral file, however, collateral files with embedded macros is likely to trigger security warnings in most LibreOffice installations. Just copying the fragment is easier.

Happy Basic macro programming!
Happy Python macro programming!
