  None of that in my LO 3.4.5!

But I've just looked at OpenOffice 3.2.1 and all that *is* there..
   (To show hidden files, need to click on the Option button top right.)


     I disagree. The correct path has always been 
Tools|Options||General. (General is part of a sublist
     When following the path I just gave, there is a section centered
vertically on the right side of that page labeled: Open/Save dialogs. In
OOo, the check box is labeled: Use dialogs; in LO, the
check box is labeled" Use LibreOffice dialogs.
     But can someone tell me what this does. Help in neither LO nor OOo
explains what happens when this is checked.
     Location of the templates in OOo: use Tools|LibreOffice|Paths
to locate where the templates are in the LO folder. replace the word
LibreOffice with
     (In Linux, both of these will have a period before them and the
rest of this will be just about LO in a Linux OS.) In LO, File|
Templates|Organize opens the Template Management dialog. Click the
Command button and select Import Templates from the context menu opening
the Open dialog. Browse to your home directory. At the bottom of the
list of folders, right click and select Show Hidden Files. (All the
files beginning with a period [hidden folders] will appear. Path to the
the OOo templates requires double clicking in this sequence:|3|user|template. You should now see all your OOo
     Now here is a secret to importing all of the templates at one time:
Select all of the templates. (For example, you can click the top
template and then hold down the shift key while clicking the bottom
template.) Click the open button, and all of the templates you selected
are copied to the LO template folder.
     Another method for someone who can use the command line in Linux:
 cp*.ot? .libreoffice/3/user/template
(This copies all the OOo templates to LO.
