Description andreschnabel 2005-10-30 18:34:58 UTC
OOo 2.0 shows warnings at several places, such as save in non-default file
format or printing a document with data fields. Thos warnings can be disabled by
the user (do not show warning agien). But they cannot be re-enabled.
This leads to confusion, if the warning triggers some action, that is not
accessible in a easy way (as with the mail merge feature - see Issue 51906).

So, in tools - options, user should be able to re-enable such warnings. 
This is similar to the "Reset Help Agent" functionality and could be placed to
the same place.

E.g left are of Options -OOo - General is about help, right area would provide a
checkbox to enable / disable all warnings and have a button "Reset Warnings".

What is the state of this issue? Can you set a target? I prefer 2.0.3 or 2.0.4...

Issue 64404 mentions a workaround

Remark at the fist comment in this issue:
'OOo 2.0 shows warnings at several places, such as save in non-default file
format ...'
That option can be reset (anyway in OOo 2.1 and 2.2 at least) via
Tools|Options|Load save>General.
I've never met an option that cannot be reset, other than issue 51906. (But to
be honust, I didn't search for them ;-) .

And how do you reenable those warnings that disabled by user with "Do not show
this dialog..." checkbox?
Yes you can edit directly config files in user folder -- but IHMO this is not an
user friendly way...
