Description okapi1253 2009-10-29 03:27:27 UTC
Steps to Recreate
1) open an Excel file which contained Macros

Actual behavior
The warning I received was "Execution of macros is disabled due to the current
macro security settings in Tools - Options - OOo-dev - Security." However, no
such menu exists. The issue also occurs in the 3.1.1 version.

Expected Behavior
Provide text that points to the correct menu location for changing macro security

NOT Reproducible with "Ooo-Dev 3.2.0 multilingual version English UI WIN XP:
[OOO320m2 (Build 9432)]"!
Seems to be INVALID, pls. see screenshot from a.m. Version (same with 3.1.1)

Pls. evidence that this menu does not exist for Mac!

Comment 5 okapi1253 2009-10-29 13:31:52 UTC
So for Macs, the wording should be changed to "OOo-dev - Preferences... -
OOo-dev - Security" as shown in the screen shots (using variables for the
OOo-dev of course since that changes between stable and development builds).
Comment 6 Rainer Bielefeld 2009-10-29 16:49:06 UTC
Proved by screenshot, so NEW

What OS do you use?
What's with HELP? If you search HELP for "Macro security" (headings only), is
the description correct?
Is that really the only "slip" or do we have a general problem with the
differing menu structure for MAC?
Comment 7 okapi1253 2009-10-31 18:21:47 UTC
I am running OS X 10.6.1. The issue does also show in the help pages:

"The Macro Security dialog appears when a document contains one or more macros.
You can also call the dialog from the Tools - Options - OOo-dev - Security page."
