[Solved] Tools > Options > *Office > Security

Postby piehole » Tue Apr 30, 2013 1:30 am

I feel like I'm going crazy.

My ultimate goal is to split my database. Instructions here http://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/FAQ_(Base)#HSQLDB and, much more excitingly, here http://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=61183 start with variations on the instructions, "Open the Tools > Options dialog."

I'm using OO 3.4.1, HSQLDB 1.8.0.10, on Mac OS X v. 10.7.5, and when I click "Tools" there's no "Options" dialog. I'm attaching screenshots for your amusement.

From the main OO open screen:

With a database open:

What is going on????

Interesting. :shock:
Apparently the Options dialog is accessed differently on a Mac.

Here's the Windows steps:

Tools > Options

Options_Security.jpg
Tools > Options > Security

Options_Security_Macro.jpg
Tools > Options > Security > Macro Security Dialog

On a mac the menu is under OpenOffice.org -> Preferences. Or so I have read.
Windows 10 and Linux Mint, since 2017
