Installed “Writer’s Tools” in OpenOffice

One thing I miss from MS Office 2007 is the ability to make documents in the Recent Documents menu "sticky", i.e. make sure they don't get crowded off the list. OpenOffice doesn't have a comparable feature. I added "History Master" - an extension that groups "recent documents of same type" - but that didn't seem to help me. Today I added the Writer's Tools extension, which has a way to bookmark favorite documents. It's still too many clicks, but maybe it will help. There a few more potentially useful features in Writer's Tools - although this might be bloat. There's another Bookmarks extension in OpenOffice, but when trying to install it on Linux, it gave me a warning I didn't really understand, in broken English. So I opted for Writer's Tools, and this seems to work well enough
