I run on Linux so I'm not sure if you have it on Win7. There's a file called registrymodifications.xcu under libreoffice/4/user. It's in some Markup format somewhat similar to html or xml. It can be kind of cryptic but I have edited that file directly with some success. I don't know if that contains everything within user options or not, but I have saved it in the past before trying something that would cause the app to barf and then restored that file and everything was fine again.

I’ve got a question about the User Profile. I’m using LO 4.1.5 on Windows 7.

I understand that my user profile consists of a bunch of folders and files in my 
AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4\User folder. But, beyond that, I can’t make sense of any of it (other 
than my Templates).

For example, I’ve made several customizations to my copy of LO, such as:

1. Screen colors
2. Keyboard assignments. I have many of my favorite paragraph styles assigned to Ctrl-key 
combinations, etc.

Where are these types of information kept? With other programs, I could find it in a file called 
<*something*.ini>, but in LO’s user profile, I can’t find anything that resembles any type of 
configuration file, and I’ve stepped my way through each and every file in each and every folder in the 
User file tree.

My computer recently crashed resulting in a corrupt User Profile. I was able to rename it and start 
over, but it would have been nice to be able to pinpoint the one or two corrupt files and correct 
them without necessarily starting from scratch. Also, I use LO on many different computers, and I’d 
like to just copy the pertinent configuration files from one computer to another without 
necessarily copying the entire user profile.
