Subject: Re: Remove ActiveX from LibreOffice


>My position on ActiveX is to leave it (lest we break applications in the wild,) and to *announce its deprecation* with two goals: first, solicit the feedback of LO ActiveX consumers and, if so inclined to continue using it, help in its support. And second, to flag a date in the future when ActiveX will be completely removed from LO codebase, pending sufficient reason and support by its consumers.

[Just to toss in a comment from a NOT NECESSARILY typical USER, I would probably fail to see any depreciation notice unless it were thrown in my face each time I used the feature until I say (in effect), "all right, Enough Already, SHUT UP!" aka, "Don't show this notice again." The same should apply to revising any existing menu accelerators. --jl]
