LibreOffice "automatic file name extension" box missing

by stackinator   Last Updated August 10, 2018 13:02 PM

I often create TSV files in LibreOffice Calc. The "automatic file name extension" box required for this process used to be an option when you File > Save As. It is no longer there since upgrading to LibreOffice 6. Where did it go? How do I get it back?

Something is screwed in the settings. I confirmed this on a separate fresh install. Anyway you need to change UseSystemFileDialog from TRUE to FALSE. If you create TSV files this is good to know.

The setting can be found at Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Advanced > Open Expert Configuration > org.openoffice.Office.Common > UseSystemFileDialog > FALSE.
