After upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10 HUD in LibreOffice stopped to work and it searches in panel indicator instead. After running command unity --repalce everything works fine, but it is really annoying to restart unity everytime you start LibreOffice. Is it a bug or can I fix it on my own?

This is almost certainly a bug; I highly recommend you report it as one. It should probably be reported against the package unity in Ubuntu (rather than against LibreOffice). If you want even more information about bug reporting than provided there, you can see this question and its answers. – Eliah Kagan Oct 21 '12 at 20:37

It is a bug, I wasn't able to find it since there is not LibreOffice in its name but Writer instead. See HUD doesn't work with LibreOffice Writer

Looks like the HUD has to learn the menu commands first: running LO for the first time in 12.10, i tried to quit the program using the HUD, but it only showed quit commands for other running apps. I chose "quit" from the menu, re-started LO and voilà: now the HUD knew "quit".

That is not right. At least not in my case. I can go Format -> Page with mouse, but HUD won't work then either. It's a bug. I would say not well named bug. – cloxy Oct 21 '12 at 10:35
