An ASCII filter options box usually means that libre office can't figure out what the format of the document is by itself, which is probably a really bad sign if you are trying to open a libre office document.
So, you say that you opened up the properties window for that file, from the file navigation window, and it says that the document is 0 bytes in size? If so, that means you somehow erased all the data in the file, which means that you are officially screwed. Hopefully you have a good memory. :|
