Import settings into LibreOffice


I'm considering migrating from 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:

    • Windows: C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\OpenOffice
    • Linux ~/.openoffice (not on linux to test)
    • Mac: /registry/data/org/openoffice

    Just copy all folders contained there to the LibreOffice folders in the same location.
