Description peter josvai 2018-04-25 20:16:33 UTC

It would be great to have "sessions" in Libreoffice, especially in Writer...

that is, to be able to save the working session... 
and reopen it next time.. the same couple of files..

to save the list of the open files...
and save this list as "a session" under a name...
and reopen it any time in the future...

I guess I don't need to advertise this functionality, cause developers ALL uses sessions like this :) wouldn't it be a pain if one hat to find which files to reopen, and reopen them individually? every time you restarted your computer?  :) :) Well, Writer users probably feel the same about it, too :)
In any case, it would be huge enhancement!! :)

"developers ALL use"

there is something like file => recent documents; and when closing a document there is a visual reference for the documents you working on

Sounds like a project. Wouldn't restrict it to Writer but open spreadsheets, drawings, and presentations too. 

To save the current state and reload it on restart we could introduce an option "[ ] Restore last session" that remembers the state of open documents on exit and restores it with the next session. If the user starts LibreOffice by "executing" a document it adds to the stack.
