Yes, it is. We disable it in distro-configs/LibreOfficeWin32.conf
(--disable-activex-component). You can enable it in your own build and
play with it. As Tor mentined in the other thread, it does not work as
one can expect, and it has no maintaner, so in order to avoid numerous
bug reports we simply disable it.

Best regards,
