Description Larry 2019-11-09 02:59:59 UTC
For all LibreOffice applications, please add the ability for the user to "pin" files to the "File > Recent Documents" popup window.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any LibreOffice application.
2. Select "File" from the Menu bar and scroll down to highlight "Recent Documents".
3.  A popup window displays about 20 of the most recently used LO files.

Actual Results:
Only the most recently used LO files are displayed.

Expected Results:
The window will display LO files that have been "pinned" by the user at the top.
These would be followed by LO files that have been most recently used.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
There are certain files that I use on a regular (monthly, etc.) basis.  However, I often have to browse to open them, since I may have opened a number of other files in the meantime.

By allowing me to "pin" specific files to this window, I will be able to find those important--but not frequently used--files when I need them.
