Subject Re: Opening an existing document

That sounds like an awful lot of work for my use.  I would have to do 
that 50 times a day, and how do you get rid of the previous bookmark 
when  you set a new one?

I think I will just use my Portable copy of OOo 3.2.0, from Sun, which 
does have the behavior I like.
