I’m looking at using LibreOffice to provide a Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewing facility in a retail business environment.
It is necessary that users can basically only view and print documents (which are linked from an Intranet or bespoke email system), so I have removed the majority of menu/toolbar options, keyboard shortcuts, and context menus.
As it stands, the solution is almost working as intended, however I have two issues which are linked: Although certain keys such as Enter/Backspace/Delete are disabled, users can still type into a document with alphanumeric keys; and if the user does modify the document, although there is no Save button, they are prompted whether they wish to save upon closing LibreOffice (which can give unsolicited access to File Explorer).
Can anyone suggest a workaround? I was thinking of maybe a macro that is invoked that prevents typing into the document, or somehow forcing the document to close without prompting to save?
