Hi Richard,

I know I could type lovely long command lines - but why? I want to just
double click a file and get it to do what I want. And I can't seem to find
even the simplest questions.

If I could find the mechanics that associates a file extension to a
program, I'd be onto a winner with the 'open -a ...' option.

The only thing I could find was this :

scroll down the page to the application launchers item.
Assuming that the download still works, you would have to adapt whatever
magic was used to point to your location.

These used to work with 2, I had them at one stage on a
Tiger installation (OSX 10.4).

The app bundle for LibreOffice on Mac does not provide separate apps,
rather modules which can be activated from the command line (as you
found out) - call it a missing feature if you like.

For most people, this is not a problem, but in your case, it is. You
could always file a bug report for an enhancement, in the hope that
someone might produce some way to get what you want, but there really
aren't that many specialised Mac developers on the project,
unfortunately, at least not at the moment.
