I have no recollection of installing the Template Changer extension, and
I did a complete uninstall and reinstall. So, if it is indeed now
preinstalled, why mention anything about installing it if it is
unnecessary to install. Obviously, some will chime in as to if it indeed
is preinstalled or not. So, that can item wait until then.
I just carried over the arrow in OOoMenuPath, as I really do not read
all the LO messages about getting rid of this or that and doing yet
something else differently; effecting "change" is probably an edifice
complex for some--not you, though. Things were OK before, and I reckon
you too resisted much of those changes for change's sake at LO docs.
Formatting that arrow was a nuisance anyway--having to use two character
styles for each text/arrow combo.
I made an effort to turn off AutoCorrect in my editing as it tends to
turn things like OOo into Ooo. One heading paragraph style in the
version 3.3 template has such a paragraph style name--likely an
AutoCorrected term that was not caught. (I included that suggestion in
the tutorial.) Some page-style names in the earlier 3.3 template
exposition had such AutoCorrect errors too, I think.
And I suppose you kept (in the template exposition) the addition about
making sure that all writers, reviewers, and editors see that all the
typefaces used in LO docs are installed on their computers, lest some
inadvertent changes not be introduced by not having all the appropriate
Anyway, in order to get a fair amount of variety in my editing tutorial,
I have also included the version 3.4 template in order to ferret out any
such items. Also, I will add a Getting Started chapter to the mix for
even more variety.

Gary, on page 10 of your edited copy of this file, you have a marginal

On the same page, you have deleted information about downloading and
installing the Template Changer extension, without explanation. Is
this extension now shipped as part of a standard LO installation (as
some other extensions are)? I could find no evidence of that, but I
may have missed it. I have installed so many extensions at various
times that I no longer am sure which were self-installed and which
come with the program.
BTW, we are no longer using the little arrow symbols in path namess;
as we update the files we are stripping them out and reverting to the
standard>. IIRC, the little arrows were used only in Getting Started
and the Writer Guide before we decided to stop doing that. The word
"we" is not used here to mean "me"; the group discussed the issue and
collectively made the decision.
