Hi :)
Thanks!  That might be useful so i'll try to have a look tomorrow.  I also
like the sort-of-bookmarks idea someone mentioned in another post.
Regards from
Tom :)

I just noticed in my dolphin at top right settings I can show tree view.

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.

Thanks for the suggestion, but No, this is the system dialogue. The
libreoffice dialogue selection in Tools-Options-General is unchecked. My
left hand panel is headed 'Places', and underneath is listed Search,
Recently used, what looks like various devices, and then places that I've

as in dolphin and nautilus?

Yes, it is.

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

 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.


I agree that the libreoffice dialogues are very useful for connecting
across the network, and I use them extensively for that. However, I would
like the option of being able to move up/down a directory tree rather than
having to do multiple clicking to search through one directory layer at a
