I’ve been a happy user of LibreOffice for a while now. However, there is something that’s been bugging me. The problem is, that LibreOffice has a lot of DRM-like features I will list below.
So, the ones I have a problem with are:
- Sheet protection
- Edit passwords
I’m not talking about encryption. These features very clearly do not require it, because in the former case, the functions are still run, you just can’t edit or see them. In the latter case, you can see everything you just can’t edit it.
So, is there a way to make LibreOffice ignore these restrictions? Something like Okular’s “Obey DRM restrictions” option. Or something different.
As TDF has been a long time supporter of both free software, and anti-DRM campaigns, I believe there ought to be an option somewhere.
