It would be useful to be able to access recent documents through a dropdown menu on the Open Document toolbar button, like new document types are available from the New Document button.
This way people could more easily access their recently used documents from the main interface.
This would be a great idea.
thanks for sharing!

I have thrown some money at the bounty too. Looks like a good idea. Would be good if the recent documents menu only show documents specific for each component? For example, recent Writer documents only when accessing the Open Document from within Writer and Calc documents only when accessing the Open Document from within Calc? Just a thought.
Gabriel, you have Bug 56696 :)
