I use two different verions of OO, on my computers.
OO 3.2.0 portable that I use on both Vista Home Premium 64 Bit and XP Home Edition sp3,
and OO 3.3 that is used the the Vista only.

The problem I am having is with the recent Documents.

When I try to open OO 3.3 on the Vista it gives me an error creating a new document. The path no longer exists. This is not a problem with the My Documents location in options, that path exists.

If I use OO 3.2, it is just annoying to have several listings of the same file, but only one exist, with the listings like this:
1: D:\\USB\Documents\...\file1.ods
2: D:\\USB\Documents\...\file1.ods
3: D:\\USB\Documents\...\file2.ods etc.

How can I remove obsolete entries in the Recent documents list?

which are more about resetting the list completely though.

Thank you. I have downloaded History Manager, and it worked very nicely.
