I was running into the same issue after the latest upgrade of 17.10 and libreoffice, and I tried a couple of things that have both failed. I have my libreoffice files sitting on FAT filesystem that I mount in fstab. Earlier I was mounting it at /data which I changed to /mnt/data. Yet I am unable to open my files (now under /mnt/data) in libreoffice. I also tried another trick of soft linking my Documents folder under /mnt/data to ~/Documents, and when I navigate via ~/Documents to open a file in libreoffice it gives the same access denied problem.
