Hi @berchca,

At least on a GNU/Linux system (and probably on OSX), the LO program has several command-line switches. From 'man libreoffice':

libreoffice(1)                   User Commands                  libreoffice(1)
...
OPTIONS
...
...
       --writer
              Starts with a new Writer document.

So you could make a new shortcut for LibreOffice (or tweak your existing one) and make it run

libreoffice --writer

There may even be a convenience alias already in place for you. On Ubuntu, you can just use lowriter, which runs this script:

#!/bin/sh
/usr/lib/libreoffice/program/soffice --writer "$@"
