> Hi,
> I'm currently working on a LibreOffice deployment for 5K users and I want to
> give the users access to corporate document templates + a few custom tweaks
> like keyboard shortcuts, macro security level and so on.
> The only way we found to do it is through the registrymodifications.xcu file
> in the user profile.
> It is a 2 step process:
> 1: LibreOffice is downloaded and installed to the computers (with admin
> profile)
> 2:  After reboot, the user profile is removed and the 
> registrymodifications.xcu file is put in place before LibreOffice is started
> (we do this after a reboot so the current user profile is updated, we can't
> do it at step 1 because it runs under admin profile and we can't easily find
> the current user profile)
> The process isn't very elegant, it looks more like a hack than industrial
> deployment:
> The .xcu file contains a lot of things, the only way I found to build a
> custom one is to apply the settings "by hand" first and then find the lines
> added in the .xcu file to build a "clean" one with only the lines required.
> Keeping only  our settings seems OK but we lose all user configuration in
> the process
> It also requires a reboot which some users don't do often to avoid wasting
> time with slow machines.
> Is there a best way to apply a company-wide configuration that wouldn't
> require reboot and would keep individual user settings?
