Hi Rafael,


   * No confirmation shown for "Set as default" (add some sort of tick or


and in a future release, maybe add "something" to easily list all default
Ex : a new tab that just dynamically list the 4 default templates (writer,
calc, impress, draw)
Ex : or a popup in the toolbar that list dynamically list the 4 default
templates ; when you select one line, the template manager open the correct
folder and selects the template.

We had this on the initial proposal but it got removed because users found
it confusing, i like more the idea of the tab than the popup.

    * Maybe a more obvious way of closing the search bar might be helpful
     [is that a bug?]


A little X button at the end– but I'd still rather discuss that before
you go
for this

The current implementation of search is so bizarre :
Why not insert the search field in the main toolbar ?
it would be so simple.

in ascii art :

today :
.............(empty space).............|Search icon|  |Gear icon v|

proposal :

.............(empty space)......[   Search field   ]  |Gear icon v|

the search field can have a placeholder "search template by name" or equiv.
Usually, search field don't need a high width, because users only enter 3
to 5 characters.

Why you think its bizarre?? Most applications, hide the search bar by
default Ex: Nautilus, Firefox, i think it looks out of place inside the
Another idea i had is that the search bar is mainly a filter of the view
and the toolbar its related to the dialog or the view items, so the search
bar could be set at the bottom
of the view,  and could be opened by doing ctrl+F or just by typing words
and closed by pressing esc and probably like it is now.

And another requests :
       * in the "breadcrumb" (when you are in a folder)
add some ">" between part of path or a visual element that clearly
indicates that it is a breadcrumb.

Is something similar to nautilus acceptable, using buttons and setting the
breadcrumb outside the view window??? Taking into account that we support
browsing deep hierarchies of folders in remote repositories.

      * when you select a template (single clic), the search icon and gear
icon are hidden. Why ?
I see no problems if they are visible when a template is selected.

     * in the "properties" dialog, show the real path of template.
It'll also indicate if it's local or remote.
