You can mass-convert documents by using the --headless --convert-to feature in your terminal.

See http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/12084/how-to-convert-documents-to-pdf-on-osx/?answer=12085#post-id-12085 for a description. PS: this is for Mac OSX, but it's the same as Linux.
Here some other information: http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/2641/convert-to-command-line-parameter/

I hope this helps.

But I think that's only a workaround for what you are describing, not a solution for converting it using a wizard. Therefore I set this to NEW and mark it as Enhancement request.

Kind regards,
Joren
