As suggested in a UX-Advise thread
Openening a UI enhancement request to implement a "Clear list" action to the File -> Recent Documents list.
Perhaps inclusion of "Clear list" can be done simply as a port of recent AOO work on the framework::RecentFilesMenuController with SVN http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?view=revision&revision=1341725 for AOO issue https://issues.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=37201
This would be point 2 on the much more substantial UI enhancement to the Recent Documents list proposed in bug 61174
Mark this one as NEW. Legit enhancement request and I saw the emails on UX-mailinglist passing by. Thanks for your research Stuart!
I'll check if it is possible to cherry-pick this commit.
So this has been accomplished with http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=0e6a5bf1d9f4106af44996548ab0924ce7e5648c
A File -> Recent Documents -> Clear List is available and functions correctly in recent dailys of master.
e.g. Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+
Build ID: 73cc9fc42cfa524a9965f58092f3a004de3a6b8
TinderBox: Win-x86@6, Branch:master, Time: 2013-04-08_05:35:47
So should be available in 4.0.3
Closing as fixed.

This won't be available in any of the 4.0.* releases. You will have to wait till 4.1.0 to see this feature in a release.

In 184.108.40.206, you have the ability to individually remove a single document from the thumbnails. I use it all the time and love the feature. Thank you guys!
Not sure a clear "all" is even desirable at this point. Don't think I ever use it.
