Note the two identical shortcuts that are different paths.

This seems like a trivial patch for someone familiar with the code.  The file picker allows you to add shortcuts (places) to folders.  However, it only shows you the last folder name of a full path.  If you create a shortcut for /u2/tmp and /u/tmp and /tmp , they all appear as shortcut tmp.  When hovering the mouse over the shortcuts, the full path should appear.

Related, the [ - ] [ + ] buttons do not have tooltips.

Screen shot shows the result of two similar shortcuts added to the file picker.

Thanks for reporting.

I mark this as a valid NEW request.

To open these dialogs you need to enable the save/load dialogs of LibreOffice itself. This can be done by:
* Open LibreOffice
* Tools > Options
* LibreOffice > General
* Check 'Use LibreOffice dialogs'

Kind regards,

In order to limit the confusion between ProposedEasyHack and EasyHack and to make queries much easier we are changing ProposedEasyHack to NeedsDevEval.

Thank you and apologies for the noise
