Does anyone on the list, whether from the DF or a user, know if
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
or drive means navigating there through the root directory. I know
it is possible to save the location, but this does not help if you
saving to a new or infrequently used external device.

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

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

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
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
lot like the Caja file manager dialog for saving.

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

There use to be an option in earlier versions of LO [I think] that
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.

Thanks for the reply and screenshot. This now seems to be a
distribution/DE issue as you have exactly what is missing here: a list
of drives and partitions. It is somewhat similar to the dialog box on
6.0.1.x running under XFCE that I just looked at.

Here is the current save dialog from Mageia 7 running Enlightenment:

I will check further in Mageia, but would be curious to hear if others
see variations based on DE, etc. I should also have thought of
downloading the rpm from the DF to see how it behaves.

Thanks again for the feedback.
