Now when I open Libre from desktop it says that the document file does not exist; even though you can see it in the list of documents. I can still open the file by going to Data D documents; but it would be much easier to open from the desktop link. Any ideas how I might do this?

Have you changed the PATH/ MY DOCUMENTS entry in LibreOffice? On my Linux/Mint/Mate system it is found in TOOLS / OPTIONS / Libreoffice / Paths menu. Your system might differ slightly.


If you have changed your document storage from the C:/ to D:/ drives, you should also change the path MY DOCUMENTS entry.

Thanks for your response. Is it just a matter of editing it from a C/ to D/ in the Paths doc menu? I have notice that some of the document already have D/ and can be opened when I open Libre Office. This may be because I opened them in data D/ so they my have change automatically to D/ when saved.
