I hate recently used documents, for many reasons, but cant see an easy way of disabling it in open office.

The way I found out (for linux) was to chattr + i the Common.xcu, History.xcu and consequently the Common.xcu_tmp and Histories.xcu_tmp files in the ~/.openoffice.org/3/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office and ~/.openoffice.org2/3/user/registry/data/org/openoffice/ directories.

Rabble rabble rabble

Posting here if anyone else is having these issues or a small glimmer of hope a developer will see my pain and make recently used documents optional (or call me stupid and point to the button...).

cheers.

Hi,
Have you read the first post on section Code Snippets ?
Announcement: PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE POSTING ### NO QUESTIONS ###

For your problem, install extension History Master (needs at least OOo 3.1), set lists length to zero. You may uninstall the extension after you have verified it works.
See http://extensions.services.openoffice.org/
Use the search tool at left for : History Master

Edit : changed the link for History Master.
