One handy thing on Windows was, that I could delete files from the opening dialogue of Openoffice via keyboard delete key. LibreOffice on Ubuntu does unfortunately seem to lack this functionality and I'm not sure if OpenOffice would have it under Ubuntu as well. Is there a workaround?

file open dialogue

  • Umm delete it with files? I just searched for it and there doesn't seem to be an extension for it, so I would say that you can't do it from that window. – Tim Aug 14 '14 at 10:15
  • @Tim Yes in the opening dialog. I have Tons of files and some are really old. It was convenient, as I didn't have to go circles if I spot something I didn't use anymore. – empedokles Aug 14 '14 at 10:23
  • Voting to close. 'something' is not clear enough. a screenshot would be helpful as a detailed description of how this happens in windows. – don.joey Aug 14 '14 at 10:39
  • @don.joey info added. – empedokles Aug 14 '14 at 11:31
  • Ok now I understand! Thanks. I do not think that this is possible. – don.joey Aug 14 '14 at 11:57

Don't think it is possible, sorry. The only alternative is to open it, then do Ctrl+Shift+S to see where it is saved, then browse to it in Files.

Although, this answer may help. It explains how to make a macro on Libre Office.
