Right, I'm seeing the problem too.

The shortcuts at the top of the list point to e.g.
$HOME/snap/libreoffice/47/Documents, and that folder doesn't exist. They
are the confined, unlocalized version of the XDG folders. They are not
very useful, to say the least…

The shortcuts at the bottom of the list are those from the host machine,
e.g. $HOME/Documents.

This problem is not specific to libreoffice, other snaps that use the
gtk open-file dialog have the same issue (e.g. eog).

** Summary changed:

- [snap] Can not select file in file picker
+ [snap] Shortcuts to XDG folders are not localized and point to non-existing 
folders under $SNAP_USER_DATA/

** Changed in: libreoffice (Ubuntu)
       Status: New => Confirmed

** Changed in: libreoffice (Ubuntu)
   Importance: Undecided => Medium
