I used to open 3 documents in MS woks 8. I could cut and paste between all 3, but in libre, I can't open but 1 document.

Also, side question: I didn't see an option like works had about dictionary, where you could look up the meaning of the word. Does anyone know if you can do that?

I answered my own question; I found out if you open the 'new' tab in the top left of a document, instead of trying to open one from the main page, it works, or if you have 2 documents, you can open them and cut and paste. Just like works. Still look forward to a dictionary 'look up' feature!

From a file manager like Windows Explorer, Mac Finder or an equivalent on Linux and other OSes, you can select multiple files, right-click and choose "Open" or "Open with... > LibreOffice". Other than Microsoft Works, LibreOffice will open each file in its own window. You can switch between the windows using OS-defined keyboard shortcuts, or use LibreOffice's Window menu.

Alternatively, you can open the Open... dialog window from the File menu and select multiple files before clicking the button Open.
