The hints on the dialog are talking about docx, doc and tmd. I venture that AES256 is used for TMDX, too.

But can you confirm this ?

Second question: Why are encrypted files presented as CDFV2 ? A coincidence ?

Code: Select all

User@machine:~$ file Saint_Morice_Août_2019.docx
Saint_Morice_Août_2019.docx: CDFV2 Encrypted

Can anyone advise me if text documents encrypted in MS Word 2010 can be opened in FreeOffice and vice versa?

FreeOffice allows you to open and save password-protected DOCX files.

Thank you very much. I will download the s/w to replace my MS Office 2010 when MS support stops.
