Need Java to create shortcut for macro

Postby drbuzz » Tue Dec 31, 2019 7:30 pm

I created a simple macro, now I want to assign a keyboard shortcut. When I follow the instructions I get to where I "select and expand Open Office Macros".
When I select the triangle to show the macros, I get a dialogue that says: "To open 'soffice', you need to intall the legacy Java SE6 runtime", I am running on the latest Java that installs with Open Office 4.1.7 (the only one that will run on a mac with 10.15). I can't install the Java SE 6 runtime because I have the latest version of Java and prior versions won't run on OS10.15.
then Open Office crashes.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

I don't use MacOS 10.15 but see if any of Q06/A06 in [Tutorial] Mac FAQ helps. You have to enable Java In OpenOffice after you install it.

Study what Oracle says about this situation.

If this solved your problem please go to your first post use the Edit button and add [Solved] to the start of the title. You can select the green checkmark icon at the same time.
