Hello Everyone,

Forgive me I'm getting on a bit and a little dim where computers are concerned! I use the Writer part of Libre Office Version 4.3.7 in English and am sort of getting there but having used Microsoft Word prior to this I am finding it difficult to come to terms with not having folders for different aspects of my written work or am I missing something?????

I appreciate any help that comes my way. Grannie Annie

Hello to Grannie Annie from Grandad Alex (nowhere near as alliterative, I'm afraid).

Unless I'm missing something (it's possible) the place to do this is within the OS ("Operating System"). If, as I suspect, you are working under Windows then it should be possible to do this when saving, since the Save dialog should offer a "Create folder" option. However, let's assume that you are working from Explorer:

Let's assume that you are going to have a "Personal" folder in "My Documents" as your top-level folder (a bit of advice: files in My Documents are auto-protected from changes during System Restore, so always store them there). So, create:-

My Documents \ Personal \

Create now as many folders in \Personal\ as you want for the different categories, and store your work in the relevant folder.

One more, extra thing:-
You will want to look at the following options settings:-


You probably have already set the Autorecovery period, but I would suggest to also select the Always create a backup copy option as just one extra safety option.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔).
