Thanks. If I understood correctly this plugin allows me to open LibreOffice from Calibre? However, I don't want to store my work in Calibre's opaque and arbitary directory structure. I feel it is made for static files, but is not flexible enough for autors.

For example, I use Asciidoc a lot. With Calibre I am supposed to put my projects (with dozens of input text files and images) under the library directory, just to help Calibre see the PDF/EPUB/HTML output Asciidoc generates. This makes no sense. Some documents are part of software projects I work on (under .../prj/path/to/project), others are just articles and other text (under .../doc/texte/, .../doc/thema/ etc.).

Not to mention the fact that the portable version requires everything to be on the stick...

Finally, it should be no problem for Calibre to store references (pathnames) in its database, and, if they exist, re-read these files at startup.
