Thanks for the suggestion. I will delve into it, and publish any finding.
Merry Christmas.

How do I change the default to gray or color? Selecting color or gray
works for one cycle only. There is no "Save" button. I am using
LibreOffice on Ubuntu 16.10 64 bit.

I'm using LibreOffice 5.1.3 (a bit old now) on Windows Vista. After selecting a source, nothing happens for me; probably something broken in my setup. However, the "Select Source" dialog looks identical to one used in GIMP, which does work and opens an external application to operate the scanner (either "Windows Image Acquisition" wizard or an application from the scanner manufacturer, depending which "source" I select).

Assuming it's similar on Linux, I'd guess that the actual dialog where you select the scan mode is some other application not directly under LibreOffice's control which defaults to a particular set of options. You may need to figure out what that application is (maybe XSane?), and see if it has any options for saving presets etc. If it's opening a separate application, that may also account for the delay opening the scanner options, which you previously mentioned.

Sorry I can't be much more help; perhaps someone else using Linux might be able to confirm some of the details.
