User Profile Reset: No
Path sample : /firstname.lastname@example.org/Hétérogénéité 28112019/
Thank you for reporting this bug. I wanted to clarify what you meant when stating "full path content accents." Do you mean "full path contains accents"? Could you also clarify step two: "how content (french) accents"? I am assuming it is a typo and "content" should be "contains" like in the previous example. I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' once you have clarified these points of confusion.
Please read "contains" (not content). Thx
LibreOffice can not save document if the path contains accents (Native dialog box). For example if the path is /email@example.com/Hétérogénéité 28112019/
I cannot seem to replicate the bug using an almost identical file-path to what was specified.

-I have this bug only on 'Open', 'Save as' or PDF button from toolbar.
-I don't have this bug if settings are 'use Libreoffice dialogs'.
-I don't have this bug if I rollback to the previous LibreOffice version (6.0).
More steps for reproduce :
-create a folder with french accents (as /récupéré);
-move or copy a libreoffice odt file inside this folder;
-Launch LibreOffice Writer. From file menu, choice 'Open'
-Try to navigate to /récupéré folder
An error box appear 3 times : "Le dossier spécifié n'existe pas ou n'est pas lisible."

Is it a bug with KDE/Plasma dialogs ? I use KDE Neon.
Thank you for providing additional information, specifically about your VCL. I attempted to reproduce the error using the additional steps you mentioned, and I was unable to do so. I never received any errors. I believe that the VCL, like you hinted at, is the issue.
Yes, the behavior indicated by "obook" is correct and occurs both using the "Open" menu and the "Save As" menu, while if you use "Save" everything works
I use OpenSuse 15.1 with KDE and LibreOffice 220.127.116.11
Let's ping the KDE meta bug and see if the KDE specialists have any ideas, then.

Screencast where it works
I cannot reproduce on Debian testing with current master, s. attached screencast (using as path: /tmp/récupéré/test.odt).

and I cannot reproduce with the version packaged by Debian either (package libreoffice 1:6.3.4-2).
Version of some possibly related KDE/KF5 packages:
ii plasma-desktop 4:18.104.22.168-4
ii libkf5kiocore5:amd64 5.62.1-2+b1
ii libkf5kiofilewidgets5:amd64 5.62.1-2+b1
1) Do you get the problem when taking exactly the steps I took in the video? Any other ideas what else I might be missing?
2) Does it work for you with other KDE applications, e.g. kate?
3) Can you try whether using a current daily build from TDF makes any difference? Those are available at  and can be installed in parallel as described at .
I added a video to highlight the error

Thanks. However, I'm still unable to reproduce. Can you possibly try to narrow this further down, e.g. using the questions from comment 11?

Adding Mian to Cc.
This sounds like the same as bug 130080, which I could also reproduce on KDE Neon. Fix is pending in Gerrit.
Closing as duplicate. Please reopen in case you can still reproduce once bug 130080 is fixed.
