Thanks. Was this documented somewhere?
Is there a way to do this in userland?
I have a number of things in ~/.openoffice.org2 but this file does not

Should this grammar error be notified upstream?

Oh, I see what you mean:

Low (not recommended)
All macros will be executed without confirmation. Use this setting only
are certain that all documents that will be opened are safe.
That works all right.
I would like a setting when no macro is ever executed, without prompting
me for anything/telling me about it. I tried achieving this changing
this setting to "High" or "Very High". I wouldn't want OOo to execute
funny things if one day I choose to open a document from an unknown
Another solution would be to tell me how to recognize macros in the
bundled files and how to to remove them (remember I build OOo files
myself from various parts). Or maybe ask OOo to tell me what these
macros are and maybe selecting among them the ones I want or not. I keep
trying to grep and comment them out but it does not work. However it
would still be useful to have a way to tell OOo to be silent about that,
without executing them nor producing a dialog box (a discrete message at
the bottom of the window or something could be enough).
