Just what exactly is the folder path for shared templates supposed to
be. My beta 2 of the version 3.5 implementation shows the following path
via the LODev options, although no such physical folder exists in my
C:\Program Files\LODev 3.5\program\..\share\template\common.

However, there does exist this path in my system: C:\Program Files\LOdev

What gives???

      The shared templates for LO 3.4 and LO 3.5 Beta 2 are stored in two
different places. This may the basis for the confusion. The "basisx.x"
folder contained in the LO 3.4 path does not appear in the LOdev path.
The following paths are based upon the paths for the ...\template\common
folder that exist in my Linux OS in the LOdev and Libreoffice3.4

LO Beta 2 path:
      C:\Program Files\LOdev 3.5\share\template\common
LO 3.4 path:


My "confusion" revolves about version 3.5 naming a nonexistent path--no 
such animal exists on my system. One would think that a real physical 
path would exist, unless the user is supposed to create two (or more) 
folders in order to comply with the path suggested via the Options.

In any event, do you know which actual path the shared templates would 
use? Or is this yet another LO bug?

I am in the process of writing a short How-to for a client about that 
and other areas--along with screenshots (which will have to be inserted 
later, it seems)... But I could leave some comments about a likely bug 
existing in the margins until the bugs get repaired.

     It pays to do some experimenting. The path for LO Beta2 is as I
wrote above. Using administrator privileges, I can place a template in
the template/common folder as listed above and have it show up in the
templates the next time LO Beta 2 is started. Hint: it is how the
templates should be added to the common folder. Use Windows Explorer to
browse to the common folder. Look at its contents. New > Documents and
Templates opens the Documents and Templates dialog. Compare the contents
of the commons folder to the templates available in the dialog.
