Where are the files in the Gallery?

Locating the Gallery

The location of your Gallery is specified in Tools ▸ Options ▸ LibreOffice ▸ Paths. This path obviously depends on your operating system:

  • On Windows:
    • Before Vista: C:\DocumentsandSettings\UserName\Application\Data\libreoffice\4\user\gallery
    • Vista: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\libreoffice\4\user\gallery
    • 7 or 8: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Libreoffice\4\user\gallery
  • On GNU/Linux:
    • /home/UserName/.config/libreoffice/4/user/gallery
  • On MacOS:
    • /Users/UserName/Library/Application Support/libreoffice/4/user/gallery

NB: These directories are hidden; you must set the option from your operating system to be able to see these hidden directories.

Storage of the objects of the Gallery

All graphical objects and sounds which are present in the Gallery can be located anywhere on your hard disk, or a network system, or an external disk, or an USB key. If you add objects to the Gallery, corresponding files won't be moved nor copied: only the location of each new object will be added as a reference.

NB: In case of a network workgroup, you can have access to a shared theme on a server, but you cannot modify its contents if you have no administration rights.

Define a new location for the Gallery

You may require a new location for the future themes of your Gallery?
