I have added many words from King James Bible to the current dictionary in LibreOffice and would like to transfer to another computer. Or is there a dictionary with all the old English King James Bible that I could add to LibreOffice? https://wp.me/pa0PtW-14 <--Sorts Bible verses in a Biblical order!

The user dictionaries are stored in your user profile - see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/U... - in a sub-directory wordbook. You can copy those files to a user profile on another machine, even on a different operating system.

Alternative you can change to using the LibreOffice portable version (for Windows). Install the portable version (on an USB memory stick or your hard drive). Copy your personal lists to the right folder in the portable version.

From now you can copy the folder containing the portable installation to other media and those copies will contain your personal libraries and settings.

Pro: Easy to move and backup your installation and personal pref's, and any files you keep in that folder. Cons: You can't start the program by double clicking on a file, you have to start the program first and open the file from the program.

Thanks @robleyd! That helped a lot. I found path to "User" file, which has dictionary in it, along with other personal settings. To copy it to another computer, the path is shown in pull down, Tools-Options-LibreOffice-Paths! The Dictionary title shows path to "User" file, open Windows explorer, click this PC to see "Paths". Worked great, I copied "User" file in windows 10 pasted it to Linux Lite, then Linux to windows! Path to "User" was...C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\User
