How can I set a default document directory for Libre Office Calc? For Libre Office Writer? ... etc.

Do you want to set different default document directory for the different applications, or one for all together? – tohuwawohu Aug 21 '12 at 8:15
I want to make a directory structure like this: --Libre Office, - Calc - Writer - etc... And be able to put documents by default into each subdirectory. Failing in that, just being able to specify a single default directory would be about half an answer. – Roger Davis Aug 21 '12 at 17:26

You can set a default documents path using the Options dialog. Open menu "Tools" -> "Options" -> "General" -> "Paths" and modify the "My Documents" path as requqired:

This will set the documents path all LibreOffice applications, so you can't set differrent paths for Writer, Calc and so on. If this is important for you, you could create a macro that opens the "Save as..." dialog and sets the path automatically.
