Description cianoz 2005-11-16 15:30:38 UTC
I need to specify some trusted sources to allow/deny macro execution.
I am confused about 2 things on how to handle this:

1) Above the "Trusted file locations" box i read "Trusted file locations are
used only if level is set to "very high", but in the "Security level" tab the
explanation for the Medium, high and very high level quotes clearly the
realationship with the trusted sources.
So, which levels care about the trusted sources ? 
Is it correct what is written in the Security Level tab or in the Trusted
Sources tab ?

2) About the trusted sources to specify it appears that OOo requires to set
every single folder and not consider the subfolders. This is very annoying
behaviour that was not present in the previous versions.
If i want to allow macro execution from all the subfolders of my template root i
 am forced to specify all folders distinctly

Or maybe i have missed something, but i can't guess what.

Hi cianoz,

we have a whole bunch of issues here. On eis a bug, the others are RFE's.
The Bug is covered by issue #44245 (Directory tree as trusted source).

I forward this to Product management.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
