I think you right-click (from File Explorer) on the top-level working 
folder and choose TortoiseSVN: Properties.
Then click New... : EOL, and choose either As is (no specific EOL) or 
Linux (LF) -- not sure whether it makes a difference for AOO or which is 
more appropriate.
I *think* that setting then applies to subfolders of your working folder.
