Using LibraOffice 3.4 OOO340m1 (Build:402) to open lots of Word 97-2003 .doc files and resave into .ODF files on my Windows 7 Pro SP1 PC.

But when I do the usual click on the Save icon and get offered to save as ODF ' the directory it offers is NOT the directory the .doc file came from. So I have to search and navigate to the correct folder before I can just save.

It just seems to remember the last folder previously opened!

Why does it do this and is there an option to get it to save in the same directory the file came from?

I've got a lot of word files to do! Smile

Use the Libreoffice dialogs:
Tools-->Options-->Libreoffice-->General "Use Libreoffice Dialogs"
