Hi there,

is it possible to disabled the selection triangle next to the save button in a toolbar or the selection itself? I would like to limit the user access...

Regards

And how should this limit user access? It's just about requiring annoying circumvention, if one needs/wants to store under another name (save, close, open file manager, rename file, open renamed file - just to bother users)

I don't think that my reasons are important to answer the question in the first place. Nevermind. I just want a clean and simple "Save" functionaltity. No "Export.." or anything else.

That's why I commented and did not answer.

Hello,

replace button Save by Save Document using Tools -> Customize -> Tab: Toolbars

It's not enough. You still need to remove the Save As buttons from the bar because when they're just inactive, they can be easily enabled via the context menu. In addition, you also need to remove the appropriate buttons from the File menu and additionally Customize and Options, because from there you can also change many things, for example in Expert Configurations.

The best way to do this is to edit the settings directly in user configuration files, then lock their ownership by the administrator and make them read-only.

What does "replace" tell you? Anyway - the whole thing is questionable.

Files containing changes that prevent saving under a different name or in a different location are in the archive at this address. LO 7.1.1.2

No guarantees!

To me there is usually a better method lurking somewhere. For example, get rid of all menus and toolbars and insert new ones using macros. Then lock the macro with a password. It's probable there are more methods better than this (maybe re-do the source).
