    Yes, that was a rant.
    Now to the important points. But first you need to furnish some
information. What is your operating system? Or, do you know where AOO
has its folder in your home folder? If you use a version of Windows, do
you know how to make hidden files visible? This has to be done if you
are to copy the folder containing your personal settings from LO to AOO.
     With this information, someone should be able to tell you how to
copy your personal settings from LO to AOO.
