Description Jim Avera 2019-01-24 19:58:58 UTC
It would be great if the "Enable Macros?" dialog allowed an option of "Don't ask again for this document".

The answer (yes or no) would be stored in the user's profile, linked to the path or URI of the document.  Optionally, also provide a "Don't ask again for this version of this document" option which also stores a cryptographic checksum.

Options->Security->Macro Security would have a button to "forget per-document security settings" (probably any change to the global settings should implicitly forget the saved settings as well).

Motivation: Currently it is annoying to have to enable macros every time a known document is opened.  Of course, the user can set Macro Security to "Low" to trust every document unconditionally, but that is too dangerous.

In fact, if per-document settings are implemented, the "trust all documents without asking" option should IMO be eliminated.  It is simply never good practice to do that.

Make sense. Moving to NEW

There is already "Trusted Sources" configuration [1]. The only needed change is IMO to allow that setting to also take specific filenames.
