linux: How to open path in LO with single click

Hallo.

I'm using LibreOffice Version: 6.0.4.2 under Linux OS in German language. I also use Plasma, where I set to open paths with a single click. I want to open paths in file handling in LibreOffice modules (Writer, Draw, Calc...) with one (single) click also.

How can I achieve this? If not possible to explain for German menu and settings in LO, then at least English settings would be ok.

Thank you in advance.

-Auguste

Menu/Tools/Options/LIbreOffice/Security - Security options and warnings - options - Ctrl+click required to follow hyperlinks.

Sorry, but this doesn't work for me, neither checked nor unchecked box: "Menu/Tools/Options/LIbreOffice/Security - Security options and warnings - options - Ctrl+click required to follow hyperlinks." And yes, I closed LO and reopened it again. But in the right window with directory contents, I can't open a displayed (sub) directory with a single click. I still need to double click. Simple question: Why does LO not use the built in file manager (here in Plasma it is Dolphin) like Firefox does?

If you refer to the file picker, I think it's not possible. If you look at Help → About LibreOffice you'll see which VCL plugin is in use: most probably it's either the gtk2 or the gtk3 one so you are basically using the gnome file picker on a Plasma environment, and gnome's file picker does not offer a great deal of configuration options. Everything you can do to change the file picker behaviour is available on a right click, and as you can see, the options are really scarce.

I have Standard VCL: gtk3. How can I change the file picker? I would prefer the built in Plasma Dolphin (or at least the behaviour of Dolphin) like Firefox does.

Sadly, you can't. A Qt5/Plasma VCL plugin is in development, but it will take time. There is a kde4 plugin that sports a KDE file picker, but I do not recommend to use it: it's loaded with problems (UI elements not being displayed, for example), so for now it's the GTK3 plugin, even on Plasma.
