Hello mailing list users.
I am currently an OOo user. It's a while I hear about LO, but so far never
got truly disappointed by it so I resisted change.
However, I recently had a problem with OOo password protection. Somehow it
disabled password protection for a file I was working on and it took me a
while to restore it. Asking for help on OOo forum, I have been informed
password protection is somehow considered "unnecessary" by... I don't know
who to be honest.
The important point is that I have been informed of various issues OOo
seems to have with password protection. The forum administrator strongly
suggested me to not use it, and even pointed out a few previous cases in
which password protection caused data loss (!!!).
I think *this is unacceptable *so I started looking more seriously at LO.
Digging the mailing list archives, I noticed there are quite a few messages
regarding password protection. It seems most problem were between keyboard
and chair, the only exception being perhaps an inter-operability problem
after switching to AES-256.
In your experience, how is LO with password protection?
