> @Heiko, candidate for easyhack ?

Shapes are generic commands, not only used in Calc. There is .uno:BasicShapes and .uno:BasicShapes.rectangle, .uno:BasicShapes.quadrat etc. with SID_DRAWTBX_CS_BASIC and SID_DRAWTBX_CS_BASIC1.. SID_DRAWTBX_CS_BASIC<n>. All the children commands needs to be disabled individually.

I would think about a new state method, assign this to all SIDs, add the code similar to ScModule::GetState( SfxItemSet& rSet ). Maybe ScTable::IsProtected returns whether the sheet is protected. OTOH, such a state method requires Calc specific commands...

Usually I fail with the first approach and things are more complicated than expected. So not an easyhack.
