Using Mac version LO
How can I get Untitled 1 in Writer back to it's Default setting?
I cannot find the file to delete it.


Rename the hidden folder found in either .config/libreoffice/4/user or ./libreoffice/4user. Changing the name of the user folder to Old-user will cause LO to regenerate the default settings.

I am not sure where user data is stored on the Mac but if the layout is similar to Linux (since the Mac is based on BSD) my guess would be home/<username>/.config/libreoffice/4/user or home/<username>/.libreoffice/4/user

On a Mac it is /User/<username>/Library/Application Support/LibreOffice/4/user
Note: In OS X versions 10.7.xx & 10.8.xx the user library is hidden. The user/library can be accessed in finder by holding down the option key an clicking on Go on the menubar. Then select the user library.
