Description muehlenhoff 2007-04-26 14:47:54 UTC
I'm trying to configure OOo 2.1.0 to disable the menu option 
for "Load/Save"->"General"->"Always create backup copy". I've tracked it down to the file 
user configuration setting file "OptionsDialog.xcu", which should apparently control the 
menu layout. Judging from the schema and comments found on the I net I wrote a 
configuration snippet as already present for other XCU spec files. My "OptionsDialog.xcu" 
looks like this and is placed in ~/.openoffice.org2/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<oor:component-data xmlns:oor="" 
xmlns:xs="" oor:name="Op
tionsDialog" oor:package="org.openoffice.Office">
<node oor:name="LoadSave" oor:op="replace">
  <node oor:name="Pages">
    <node oor:name="General" oor:op="replace" oor:finalized="true">
      <node oor:name="Options">
        <node oor:name="Backup" oor:op="replace" oor:finalized="true">
          <prop oor:name="Hide">

Unfortunately, this isn't put into effect; upon access of the options the OptionsDialog.xcu 
file is renamed into OptionsDialog.xcu.bak, but nothing further happens. I've been unable to 
narrow this further.

strace shows a failed attempt to 
open /usr/lib/openoffice/share/registry/modules/org/openoffice/Office/OptionsDialog Is this 
harmless? If not, how can this file be generated? Is the specific feature to display a subitem 
of a menu fully implemented in 2.1.0?

cd->pb: Please have a look.

pb: sorry but at the moment you could only disable option groups and pages and
not a single option. But we want to implement it in the future.
