* Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 will be flagged by the Gatekeeper facility
in macOS. This is a feature to help guard against malware on macOS
o For OS X up to 10.11 "El Capitan": There is a procedure laid out
at the following link to allow applications not installed from
the Mac App store to run. See the Mac support article
o For macOS 10.12 "Sierra" and up: In Finder, Control-click or
right click the icon of the app. Select Open from the top of
contextual menu that appears. Click Open in the dialog box. If
prompted, enter an administrator name and password. This is
needed just the first time you launch Apache OpenOffice.
o Due to a known bug in Oracle Java
installations of Apache OpenOffice on macOS that do not have the
legacy Apple Java 6 installed will not be able to recognize
Oracle Java 7 and 8. If not able to upgrade to Java 9 than
install the legacy version of Apple Java from the following
link: Legacy Apple Java 6 <https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572>.
This will allow the portions of AOO that require Java to run
