I'm running Linux (Devuan Bewoulf - with openbox, and no filemanager running) and Libreoffice

When I get the open document dialogue box it displays as an option on the left every mount point/device it can find - 99% of which is clutter. How can I customise it? Or even leave that section out completely. On Linux you can get everywhere via the filesystem - I can't say I want my document editor to mount filesystems for me.

I came across a similar query ...

but for stopping showing 'dot' directories. But on the option to use built in LibreOffice save/open dialogs doesn't appear to be in the Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> General Section

To answer my own question, the answer is the answer to this question ...

Prevent dialogs to open or save files from showing every last hidden folder

i.e. to force LibreOffice to use its own Open/Save dialog. See the 2 solutions there.
