Publisher Automation Security Level

This policy setting controls whether macros opened programmatically by another application can run in Publisher.

If you enable this policy setting, you may choose an option for controlling macro behavior in Publisher when the application is opened programmatically:

- Low (enabled): Macros can run in the programmatically opened application.
- By UI (prompted): Macro functionality is determined by the setting in the "Macro Settings" section of the Trust Center.
- High (disabled): All macros are disabled in the programmatically opened application.

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, Publisher will use the default Macro setting in Trust Center.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
