I'm considering migrating from OpenOffice.org to LibreOffice, and I want to make sure LibreOffice picks up all of the settings and customizations I've made. Will LibreOffice read the user profile automatically, or do I need to take any action to keep my settings when I migrate?
You can import your settings from OpenOffice by copying the profile directory, location varies by platform:
Just copy all folders contained there to the LibreOffice folders in the same location.
I just installed LibreOffice 3.4.5 to try it out on a Windows 7 (64bit) laptop, unselecting the 'Use as default' for each of the MSOffice components, so it would not disturb my Openoffice 3.3.0 configuration.
To my surprise, LibreOffice took over and now is the default for my .doc, .xls, .ppt files. All of my Openoffice configuration was copied, including the extensions that I had installed.
Fortunately it all works!
