Some time ago LibreOffice changed thumbnail quality and now they are ~80-90% of my spreadsheets size. I searched in options but there is nothing to disable saving them. I didn't search in expert configuration, because there is no search function there...I wonder why someone didn't thought of adding search like in firefox about:config

Bug 61320 - FILESAVE, PREFERENCES: Allow user to choose whether to create thumbnails
libreoffice/core/commit · fdo61320: Allow user to choose whether to create thumbnails inside odf.

Tools → Options... → LibreOffice → Advanced → Expert Configuration:

generate-thumbnail fdo

(double click toggles value to false)

Thanks, great answer. Too bad it's in nightly build, guess I have to wait :)

That enhancement will be available in LibreOffice 4.3.0.
I have tested it successfully with LibreOffice 4.3.0 RC2.
