With the new release of Ubuntu last week I received a new release of LO

For some reason, my templates are no longer accessible. The files are 
present in a folder that is referenced in the "Tools-Options-Paths" - 
all unchanged since the previous version of 3.4. When I try to access 
the templates through the organise templates feature, there are no 
templates. I also get an error message "templates already exists"- 
presumably a reference to the folder templates rather than really bad 
English. This error message also comes up when I open an existing document.

When I try to start a new document using a template I get this message:

"Error creating a new document; templates already exists."

I've checked paths and permissions and I can't see what is wrong.

     The problem arises from a change in where the templates are
located: LO 3.5 stores them in a different location
(.config/libreoffice/3/user/template) than 3.4
     Suggestion: use the organise templates feature again. If you use
"My Templates as the folders for your templates, highlight it. The click
the Command button and select Update. Perhaps this will cause your
templates to appear.
     If this does not work, copy your templates contained
in .libreoffice/3/user/template to .config/libreoffice/3/user/template.
Then organise your templates, highlight the My Template folder, click
the Command button, and select Update from the drop down menu. The
templates should appear.
     I used this process to add multiple templates to My Templates, and
it saves time compared to importing one template at a time.
