Hi, and thank you for confirming what I saw regarding the scalable apps...

Now, I did not remove those files. Instead, I made smaller svg files, ~ 700
*bytes* each for base, calc, draw, impress, and writer files and ~ 450
for the start-center-related files. I gave them the corresponding file
and replaced the bloated ones with the smaller ones. And, so far, I can
still open LibreOffice just fine. So I still don't know what part those
files play and why they're there.

If you're interested, here's my "replacement" code for the calc svg file :)
Obviously, it doesn't look the same but it gets the point across ;)

<svg width="166" height="205" xmlns="";>
  <rect ry="9" rx="9" id="svg_21" height="194" width="156" y="5.5" x="5"
stroke-width="5" stroke="#91E185" fill="#7f7f7f"/>
  <path fill="#91E185" stroke-width="5" d="m83,7l76,1l0,68l-76,-69z"
id="svg_22" stroke-linejoin="round"/>
  <path stroke="#999" id="svg_24"
d="m81,5.5l7,-0.5l73.5,67.5l0,7l-81,-74l0.5,0z" stroke-width="5"
  <text font-weight="bold" xml:space="preserve" text-anchor="middle"
font-family="Monospace" font-size="134" id="svg_1" y="155" x="83"

To view it as an svg file, paste the code into a text editor, and save the
file with any prefix but the *suffix must be .svg*. You can then view the
file with your default image viewer.

Hullo, Hitesh/chimak111 ! And thanks for posting your code for replacing
those bloatted .svg files ! The point is, precisely as you write above,
that we Ā«still don't know what part those
files play and why they're thereĀ» -  or for that mattter, why they are so
large. Hope some knowledgeable user or developer can contribute to our
enlightenment !...
