I have a macro that opens a  fie I often open
I have a button that is associated with my macro on my toolbar
Can I make a keyboard shortcut that runs this macro/clicks my button to open my file.  It seems like F3 does nothing.  I would like to assign it to run my macro/click my button.

From the Libre Office menu choose Tools >> Customize.
Now click on the keyboard tab.
click on F3 in the shortcut keys list
In Category expand out the libre office macros to find your macro
click on your macro in the function section
click modify (This assigns your macro to that keystroke)
click OK

That should do it for you.

Thank you again.  I was clicking "modify" too early.

It appears that I wasn't careful when I moved my mouse.  I assume that the point rating "500 average" was because I gave ltlbearand3 a grade of "C".  I use a sensor pad on a laptop to move my pointer around.  My computer mistakenly thought I clicked on "C" as I was moving the mouse to "A". Please give ltlbearand3 the "A" they  deserve.  That makes the second time I've made that mistake.  ltlbearand3 answered my question exactly.  The mistake was MINE.
