Bug ID: 115948
           Summary: Make start center optional
           Product: LibreOffice
           Version: release
          Hardware: x86-64 (AMD64)
                OS: Mac OS X (All)
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: medium
         Component: UI

Provide the ability to turn off the automatic display of the start center. 
Right now it comes up whenever no document is selected.  With that change, the
Tools and Help menu should always be present, even if no document is being
displayed.  (If the automatic display has been turned off, of course the user
can always invoke the start center from the File menu item.)  Rather than new
preferences, I suppose the same functionality could be provided in the start
center window itself, but I think I'd prefer it be as a preference, presumably
in the LibreOffice/Preferences/LibreOffice/View window.  Obviously it's a
personal preference (that's why they're called that, right?) but most of the
time I find the start center an annoyance rather than a help.  I know other
apps I've used have similar functionality, but I don't like it in them either! 
As best I can tell, the only functionality you lose by turning off the start
center is to be able to delete individual items from the recents list.
(I'm assuming this applies to all OS's and hardware.)
