I would like to propose to Linux management that any new document formats generated by OpenOffice, LibreOffice, WhateverFutureOffice will come with a plugin that gets called by Linux search program. For example Ubuntu has a program called "search for files". The program will not find by content documents like .odt .ott .docx. That is because these documents use nested files format. It should be required for any new word processor with new data format to provide a plugin which would be hookable (I don't mean se-x) into the search engine. Yes, I did find some scripts that can look inside the .odt but those scripts are unusable when you have 100,000 documents. (I do have that many.) Yours humbly, experienced software developer.
first of all, this is rather out of LibreOffice's scope as there are a multitude of search systems that are used by the various distributions and operating systems. E.g. Mac OSX uses spotlight etc...
That having said, Ubuntu provides for example the "tracker" indexer, which is supposed to be able to parse and index OpenDocument (OASIS) files. See https://live.gnome.org/Tracker/SupportedFormats.
LibreOffice is made available by volunteers around the globe, backed by a charitable Foundation. Please support our efforts: Your donation helps us to deliver a better product!
