"Like modern web browsers, the LibreOffice suite supports a range of extensions to expand the software?s functionality. You can find a host of extensions on the project?s Extensions page. When you find one that interests you, download its .oxt file to your home directory. Open LibreOffice, and from the menu select Tools -> Extension Manager. Click the Add button, browse to your home directory, then select the .oxt file you downloaded. LibreOffice will add and activate the extension.

"Some extensions change the look of LibreOffice. For instance, OpenOffice.org2GoogleDocs displays five new buttons on your toolbar. With extensions that add items to your toolbar, you have the option of leaving them docked with the rest of your toolbar functions, or undocking them. To undock functions from your toolbar, roll your cursor over the left side of your toolbar options until the arrow changes to what looks like a hand. Hold down your left mouse button and drag the selected toolbar downward as to detach it. Should you ever wish to reattach the toolbar, you can simply drag it back into place."
