LibreOffice version 188.8.131.52 Debian Linux 10 "Buster" KDE Frameworks 5.54 Plasma 5.14.5 KDE Applications 18.08
In the LibreOffice “File->Open…” window, my “View” setting is not remembered.
File->Open... <right-click>->View->Detailed View <- change from "Short View" to "Detailed View" <close> File->Open...
The “View” setting has reset back to “Short View”, instead of remembering my change to “Detailed View”.
I’ve fixed this problem by switching the “File->Open…” dialog window from the KDE system window to the LibreOffice specific window.
This switch is done in LibreOffice version 6 (my version) by:
Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Advanced Open Expert Configuration UseSystemFileDialog=False
For reference, in LibreOffice version 5 (older version), this switch is done by:
Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> General [CHECK] Use LibreOffice Dialogs
So by switching to the LibreOffice specific “File->Open…” window, my changes to the “View” settings are remembered.
So far, so good.
Unfortunately, this new LibreOffice specific “File->Open…” window does not allow me to delete a file/directory.
In the original KDE system “File->Open…” window, I could delete a file/directory by:
<right-click>FileName->Move to Trash
(Also, the DELETE key shortcut would also delete the selected file/directory.)
This window/mouse behavior is typical.
In the new LibreOffice specific “File->Open…” window:
"<right-click>FileName"-><missing delete option>
Only a “Rename” option is offered; no delete option or any other option is offered.
(Also, the DELETE key shortcut does NOT delete the selected file/directory.)
This window/mouse behavior is not typical.
- How do I add a delete option to the
LibreOffice specific “File->Open…”
- Or … how do I make the original
KDE “File->Open…” system window
remember “Detailed View”?
Thank you for the help.
