Template oddities with OOo Impress
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:11 EST
Description of problem:
All of the templates are not available when I use the presentation wizard.
However, if I place a template in ~/.openoffice.org2.0/user/template they
inbuilt ones and the one in the user directory appears. However, user created
templates do not propogate on the slide (i.e. use it on slide 1, it's not there
on slide 2)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the OOo presentation wizard without any templates in the
1. Create a new template and save as a template in the
2. Create a presentation using it
Case 1 - none of the OOo inbuilt templates appear (the initial dropdown box is
Case 2 - all templates appear, but the user created template only lasts for 1 slide
All inbuilt templates should be available and user created templates should
propogate to all slides.

So for 1, lets be sure. This is what I get, i.e. the two default template
entries. You have no templates listed here ? Have you done any customization ?
i.e. mv ~/.openoffice.org2.0 tempoffice and run ooimpress
If I move .oo.o2.0 as you've said, I get the the two default templates. What is
odd though is that I've never altered anything in Impress other than "don't show
pointer during presentation". No other settings have been touched.
I recall a good few versions back that this happened and the next version fixed
it, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was!
if you could
diff -ru ~/.openoffice.org2.0 backupdirectory > /tmp/config.diff
and attach that /tmp/config.diff output here it might show what the config entry
In another issue you mentioned moving home directories from one machine to
another, that kind of thing might have affects like this.

Diff file as requested
I'll attach another diff from the laptop (the laptop exhibits the problem with
templates which don't propogate down) at some point today to further help.
is this a dup of the other template issues, resolved with using
Same sort of problem, though not the same. It's fixed anyway.
