Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:12 EST
Description of problem:
If I place templates into ~/.openoffice.org2.0/user/template for OOImpress or
any other user defined location, they are not being detected when using the wizard
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place any odt file into ~/.openoffice.org2.0/user/templates
2. Define a place where templates are other than in (1)
3. Start OOImpress using the wizard
The templates aren't picked up
The templates should be picked up
Worked fine in 1.9.122
hmm, are you simply copying the files into the template location ?
can you do "file->templates->commands->update" and see if that does the right
thing for you ?
i.e. from the help
"You may need to update the view of the templates in the dialog before you can
see a newly created template. In this case, choose File - Templates - Organize
and in the submenu of the Commands button, choose Update."
in my case i created a template and saved it to a random location, and used
file->templates->organize->my templates->command->import template to add my new
template, then on creating a new presentation from the wizard I got a "my
templates" entry on the dropdown list and my template was listed.
Yeah, that got it. I'll close this and the other template bug report as they're
