LibreOffice is based on OpenOffice, thus, answer for your question you can find here and here (there is no direct and easy solution for this problem).

Oh :( it is bad. I have found a lot of similar inquiries over the web... Why they do not implement such a function? Is it impossible or something?

I think the reason is that the form control functionality isn't popular and related tasks have a small priority. Or may be, there is no any bug/suggestion about this problem on the LO issue tracker.
