Perhaps it has had problems with it in those areas in the past, so

Hi :)
If it's the Mandriva builds then would it be best to file against Mandriva?
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=mandriva
It seems weird they removed the option.  Perhaps they put it somewhere else, 
hopefully close by?

DistroWatch is a good place to compare different distros and to get useful 
links.  
https://qa.mandriva.com/
I didn't want to create an account there because i don't use Mandriva but even 
so i was able to do a search for LibreOffice.  
https://qa.mandriva.com/buglist.cgi?query_format=specificorder=relevance+descbug_status=__open__product=content=LibreOffice
Only 26 results and didn't seem to include the one in this thread.

Apparently Mageia is a a drop-in replacement for Mandriva and neatly avoids the 
constant political turmoil, uncertainties and struggles that Mandriva manages 
to pull itself through.  Both are beautiful distros well worth trying.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Hi :)
That tiny url link took me to an openSUSE forum.  Most distros do work in very 
much the same way as each other so it's quite valid to do that but generally 
it's best to stick to the dedicated forum.  For Mandriva the official forum (i 
got this from the DistroWatch site) is 
http://forum.mandriva.com/en/

Mageia is very close to Mandriva so asking at 
https://forums.mageia.org/
might be good too.  

There are general forums that tend to have sections for each different major 
distro.  I found this was the best although i didn't try many as i got good 
answers fast enough from 
http://www.linuxquestions.org
Even questions about distros that it doesn't seem to officially support do get 
answers.  

Regards from
Tom :)

There is some interesting discussion on the option here:

      http://tinyurl.com/7aoe3bf   

Perhaps the Mandriva LO RPM omits it if the user has KDE?
   Or could it be that some LO 'Open/Save' files are missing, so LO omits the
option?

always the possiblity that somehow the Mandriva download has a fault in

Well, they don't call it fault. They call it desktop integration.

Hi :)
I think

Tools - Options - LibreOffice - General

is the right place.  It's a bit weird that the first section in the left-hand 
panel in that pop-up is LibreOffice.  It kinda makes sense after you have 
played around with the different options but at first it seems weird.

You can copy ~/./openoffice/3 to ~/./libreoffice/3.

First move the existing settings to a backup file:
$ mv ~/.libreoffice/3/ ~/.libreoffice/3.back

Then copy the OOo settings to LO:
$ cp -R ~/.openoffice.org/3/ ~/.libreoffice/3/

If you run into any issues, you can always move ~/.libreoffice/3.back to
~/.libreoffice/3.

  Thanks, Andy! That worked (after I had done 'Templates/Organise'
and fingered the default template).
