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

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
mounted, I have no problems Saving files to it. I do not have to
through to "root" to get to the file system / media / user /
folder / data file - the hard way. The dialog to save the file
lot like the Caja file manager dialog for saving.

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

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

I will check further in Mageia, but would be curious to hear if
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.

I have now done my homework and here is a link to the variants for
save dialog in LO:

Examples for LO- are all from Mageia 7, the Enlightenment-22
desktop installed, Plasma and XFCE in the live beta. The rpm of LO- from the Document Foundation running on E22 (not shown) is
same as the Mageia version.

The problem can be seen in the E22 and Plasma live dialogs where one
has to navigate to get to an externally connected device. An
version of Plasma may be better, but clearly the XFCE live (and a
Fedora Cinnamon live I looked at) are far superior.

There is a screenshot of LO-6.3-beta1 which fixes the problem for

And an bug report (as 6.2 may be the default in some distros):
