I would like to be able to mark a file with a certain rank in the opening files menu. Opening a file « push » the previous opened file in the order.
I should be able to mark a file to remain first in the order.
Are you referring to the "Recent documents" menu?

> Are you referring to the "Recent documents" menu?
I would say yes to your question !.
Sometimes a file I need to use frequently gets « bump » outside the « Recent documents » menu. My request is :
When saving a file, I should be able (optional) to assign a « rank/position » to the tumbnail of my file in the « Recent documents » menu.
For example, « Options » would be :
1. First thumbnail shown (keep it at the top of the windows and at the left of the first row).
2. Show this new thumbnail at the right/next of my previous selected thumbnail (in the case I would already have other selected thumbnail files.
3. Keep the tumbnail showing in the « Recent documents » menu (meaning the thumbnail would be « push » to the left of a new created file but would still be visible in the « recent documents » menu. Previous last file would be erase from the « Recent documents » menu when my preferred/selected thumbnail would get to the bottom of the windows.
Ok, I will ask the UX folks, if they have any ideas on the implementation.
Let's call it a favorit function for documents. And of course, those favorits should be the first in the menus.
Although I understand your wish, it sounds to me a little bit like messing with the operating system. And as a lot of work for not much benefit. The UI is easily done: I'd just add a checkbox to the properties dialog and an icon next to the file menu entry to indicate that the document is a favorit. But storing this flag needs to be done in the ODF, and sorting the list might be not so easy.
-> needsDevEval (maybe I'm wrong and it is an easyhack)

I understand your evaluation ! O.K., let me suggest another way to implement my request. Why not create/designed an upper section/line in the « Recent documents » where I would « manually » slide my preferred files. It could contain six (maybe less) boxes. Maybe this would prevent a major change to the code.
OP is referring to the StartCenter handling of the Most Recently Used list which is recorded per user into their LibreOffice profile, embedding thumbnails if not suppressed.
As laid out in META bug 61174 this is a duplicate of bug 38742
