Like Microsoft Office. All the words which I added to my Dictionary will just fade away. All customization and shortkey I created will certainly fade away at some point unless there is CLOUD SYNCING available.

Its really annoying to redo things, customize entire thing again.

There is whole another level of possibility where things get synced

Somehow I don't see a reason for downvoting the question. Though in my opinion this cannot (and should not) be implemented, the question itself is quite reasonable, and deserves an answer with reasoning, not a downvote.

To make this possible, The Document Foundation should start providing some cloud-based services to users, which includes having resources to safely keep personal data of users, and provide reliable access to that data. That implies spending substantial amount to keep the required infrastructure (or to pay another entity to do that, and also to audit itself and/or that other entity for safeness and security issues)... and all other possible spendings.

It is totally out of scope of non-profit The Document Foundation; and could only be possible for commercial customers of some company making profits.
