Subject Re: Absurd thing about macro security
Date Sun, 06 Jul 2014 00:53:06 GMT
Can you tell us what does ur macro actually do?

Most of these settings are declared on the XCU whicch are XML. The
schema could have changed or something along those lines like the path
on the ~/.openoffice/ folder.

However maybe you run your macros within AOO which could be a
different service, so until we dont get that information we cant tell
which change could have an effect on your macro.
