Thanks, Bruce. I probably looked right over half of these. As far as the find bar issue goes, the problem cleared itself up after reinstalling (before, I had the find box and nothing else on that line; now it shows up when I press Ctrl-F, like it's supposed to, and the other icons are there, as well).

If desired, install and select an alternate icon style as well.

as is the bar at the bottom with the "Find" window, which I can't find a
way to get rid of.

I'm not terribly happy with the new opening screen either, with all the
recent documents being displayed

Set to value desired (including zero).

Keyboard shortcuts are changed
For maximum productivity set your own KB shortcuts under Tools > Customize.

Okay, I'll take back part of what I said.  I just reinstalled, and the
destination option does, indeed, appear.  It's just so unobtrusive that I
didn't see it the first time.

As I might have said when I posted a question about opening a
password-protected Excel file, I updated LO to v5.2.1.2.  Still can't open
that file, but that's not what this post is about.

One reason I delayed updating is what I read with regard to v4 -- the
icons in the menu bars are terrible!  Way too large, as is the bar at the
bottom with the "Find" window, which I can't find a way to get rid of.

I also had some problems with the installation on Windows 7, although
they're different from the thread on that subject.  I chose Custom
installation, as always, but it didn't ask where I wanted to install it.
The installation just took place on drive C, which I reserve for system
files (programs go on P).  I was able to copy the installation to the
correct drive and change the various shortcuts, but for some reason I can't
change the address in the registry.  Fortunately, this doesn't seem to make
a difference.

Of greater concern is that the new installation didn't maintain all my
settings, and every day I'm finding something I need to fix.  The
installation more or less deleted my old one, which I had expected, but all
the paths still point to the ones that were deleted.

I'm not terribly happy with the new opening screen either, with all the
recent documents being displayed (and no way that I've yet found to reduce
the number shown).  Keyboard shortcuts are changed, and while they're now
consistent and make some sense they'll take some getting used to.

I'm sure there are ways to fix some of the things I'm griping about and I
just need to keep looking, but it's sure putting a crimp in my productivity!
