Description Christian Lehmann 2020-09-18 08:07:23 UTC
The list of recent documents should be updated if a document no longer exists.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Rename or relocate a file recently edited in LO.
2. Open menu File > Recent documents.
3. Click on the old file name.
4. Message pops up "File name does not exist." Close it.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3.

Actual Results:
Old file name is shown again, step #4 is repeated.

Expected Results:
File name should be deleted from the list of recent documents.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Additionally, upon the first discovery that a file no longer exists, a right-click on the dead link might open a file manager window to support the user in locating a renamed or shifted file.
