I'm trying to figure out where the document I'm working on is located on the hard drive. Is there a command that opens the containing folder?


You will find the information you are looking for in the document properties (File -> Properties). In the General tab, you will find the location, as well as the file name and other information:

Document Properties

This was verified for a Writer document in LibreOffice on Ubuntu 18.04.1. The dialogues may be slightly different on other platforms.


It's not exactly what I'm looking for, but if you click File > Save as... the save dialog will open in the last place this document was saved.

    On Ubuntu, File -> Properties -> General tab shows the name and location of the current document. – AFH Nov 20 '18 at 15:15
