Only with the History Master addon from Open Office!

The program is listing every files that were used on the machine.

It should be a basic function...


Slow and antiquated piece of kluge -1 Helpful

Negative Review by soulrain
about LibreOffice Jul 2016

I wanted the Writer so as to use a spell checker for a more obscure language to which, it seems, Libre Office offered support.
First I see (and search other's feedback on this) that I must download the whole bundle of things I'll never use. Ok, I do that.
Then I install the program and observe how there is no option whatsoever to not install all the other parts of the kluge. Can't do that. Ok, let's go on and install more useless crap on our machines. It's just like the 90s (of which the interfact seems very attached to).
Finally, when I wanted to install the add-on for spell checking that language, Libre Office takes me through a guilt trip as if I was opening a JAVA page for nuclear launches: window after window of confirmations and warnings. But did it work? No. It didn't. Something – don't ask me what, the program froze for half an hour for a mere few megs of the add-on – wasn't quite what Libre Office wanted and only a force Ctrl+Alt+Del of Libre Office managed to bring the machine back to a functional state.
Uninstalled it the next minute, good riddance.

The title says it all. Writer is an outstanding word processor, and there are a myriad of applications for the price of 0.

There is:

You only get Microsoft's Writer, Calc and Impress equivalents for £79.99! And all of this costs 0. It works no problem on my windows machine, so it is absolutely outstanding for windows users.
