Perhaps _Getting Started with LibreOffice_ is the guide you need. Find, download, and study to find out how to make changes in this program.

I thought LO already is by default: its appearance is someone's taste, and you are the other person that needs to override what you think stinks. LO is configured so that it can be changes can be made. This way you can have your choices applied to your installation, and I can have mine. I should not have to use your choice anymore than you have to use mine.

Now to the important part: how to change the appearance to how an individual wanted it to look. In Linux, the configuration files are found in /home/user name/.config/libreoffice/4/User. Before installing a newer version over an older one, made a copy of the User folder. Then after installation, move this folder back to the 4 folder. This will retain the configurations you want. While I have Windows 10 on a dual boot, I do not use it enough to research where the configuration files are on it.


C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\LibreOffice\4

One of the things I hate about LO is by default it looks awful ( my opinion )
How can I configure it ( on Linux and Windows ) so that all users get the same appearance
without them having to do anything but then can over ride it if they think
my taste sucks ;-)

If there is a guide someone can point me to I would appreciate it
