Libreoffice 4.2 and 4.3 on opensuse and xubuntu

The left hand panel in the 'open' and 'save as' dialogues shows 'Places'

This is a LibreOffice dialog, an alternative to the system dialogs.

Is it possible to change this to show the folder/directory tree instead,
as in dolphin and nautilus? 

Yes, it is.

Go to the Tools > Options menu then LibreOffice > General. Uncheck the
"Use LibreOffice dialogs" checkbox.

It would make it much easier to navigate
through several layers of folders.

Yes, perhaps. Note that the LibreOffice dialogs are (IMO) providing a
better UI: the Places thingy allows to always have the more often used
directories at hand (too bad they are not sorted), which is a PITA when
using the native dialogs. Second, the LO dialogs provide a Connect to
server button (the three dotted button, top right) which makes very easy
to connect to... well... a server :)

To add or delete an often used directory to the Places list, just use
the "+" and "-" buttons at the bottom.
