Acutally, $HOME/$DOCUMENTS would make more sense (or whatever the correct representation of localized Documents folder in the ~ dir would be).

Turning back to bug report so can change papercut status as this is still appearing as new bug. Also this was a bug not a question as the default (the dir set after installation of libreoffice) export directory was inside a hidden folder. This now appears to be fixed in the latest package however :)
