When creating PDF files
Select to see a warning dialog when you try to export a document to PDF format that displays recorded changes in Writer, or that displays comments.
Remove personal information on saving
Select to always remove user data from the file properties. If this option is not selected, you can still remove the personal information for the current document with the Reset Properties button on File - Properties - General.
Recommend password protection on saving
Select to always enable the Save with password option in the file save dialogs. Deselect the option to save files by default without password.
Ctrl-click required to follow hyperlinks
If enabled, you must hold down the Ctrl key while clicking a hyperlink to follow that link. If not enabled, a click opens the hyperlink.
Block any links from documents not among the trusted locations (see Macro Security)
Blocks the use of linked images by documents not in the trusted locations defined on the Trusted Sources tab of the Macro Security dialog. This can increase security in case you work with documents from untrusted sources (e.g. the internet) and are worried about vulnerabilities in image processing software components. Blocking the use of links means that images are not loaded in untrusted documents, only a placeholder frame is visible.
