A macro will run if adequate credentials are present in either category.

Note: Medium is the default security level before OOo 2.3; High is the default from 2.3 forward.

The Low security level setting is not recommended.

Trusted locations are configured by the user; there are no trusted locations in the default configuration. A macro’s location is it’s containing document’s location in the filesystem. Macros stored outside of any document always have a trusted location.
