3.4 Enabling Microsoft Office integration

If Microsoft Office integration is enabled, Oracle IRM Desktop supports the creation and editing of sealed Microsoft Office documents, and controls Microsoft Office to ensure that you do not accidentally exceed your rights. Microsoft Office integration might be enabled automatically. If not, you can enable it manually as follows.

    This opens the Oracle IRM Desktop Options dialog.

    Alternatively, you can right-click the Oracle IRM icon in the Windows notification area (system tray) and select Options.
