I don't see anything for where to have the document open: first page, or
where last edited. I see "Load user-specific settings with the document"
but not where to select that particular setting.

It's under "File->Properties->General->   Use User's data

AHA! The magic tickbox. "Apply user data"! I knew it was well-hidden
somewhere. It appears to be "on" by default, but I think someone on this
thread said it wasn't working, a bug?

The "magic tickbox" is already ticked (the default, I presume), but
doesn't appear to make any particular difference to where the cursor is
positioned when opening a document for editing.

Then you *must* fill your data in Tools->Options->LibreOffice->User data.

Finally, the cursor potion is remembered in each document created or saved
by the User data's owner.

Thank you! I think I need to write an FAQ on that one. :-)


Jean, FWIW, the last couple of versions of OOo also did not
automatically position the cursor at the last save either, so it is
unlikely something specific to LibO.
My copies of OOo 3.2.1 and OOo-dev 3.3 both position the cursor the way
you want. I just tested them. I'm running them (and LibO) on Ubuntu


Thanks for the confirmation Jean. I wonder if this is Deb specific then? I'm running an up-to-date testing machine. I will post to the Debian user group and see if anyone else experiences anything similar and come back with any feedback.
