I want to create a following macro in PowerPoint 2007: Add specific animation to selected object, pressing hotkey.
I already enabled Developer page, but I can't find how to record my actions and assign hot key.

Why was the record macro feature removed from Powerpoint 2007?
According to Steve Rindsberg, PPT MVP, macro recorder wasn't all that great even in 2002/2003. It missed all animation stuff and other things. With all the changes to the object model in 2007, bringing the recorder up to speed would've taken a LOT of work. They probably decided the resources would be better spent on other features and rather than deal with a lot of tech support problems with the macro recorder, and they removed it. (Tech-archive)
Start by enabling the developer tool bar: office button | PowerPoint options | Popular | Show Developer Tab In Ribbon.
Then follow the other answer.
