Does anyone on the list, whether from the DF or a user, know if there
are plans to improve the save dialog?

As it stands, at least on Linux, separate partitions and connected
drives are no longer shown in the dialogue. Saving to such a partition
or drive means navigating there through the root directory. I know that
it is possible to save the location, but this does not help if you are
saving to a new or infrequently used external device.

If needed I will file a request for enhancement because the one step
forward for cloud users brought several steps back for connected

What Linux are you using, and what version of LibreOffice are you using?

I use Ubuntu Mate 18.04 and LO

I plugged in a thumb drive and a 2T USB drive.  As long as they are mounted, I have no problems Saving files to it. I do not have to go up through to "root" to get to the file system / media / user / device folder / data file - the hard way. The dialog to save the file looks a lot like the Caja file manager dialog for saving.

Since we cannot include graphics here, I placed a JPG file on one of my domains that shows you what mine looks like.

There use to be an option in earlier versions of LO [I think] that asks if you wanted to use LO's file manager for load/save or the system's file manager.  I do not see dialog in this version.
