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.
I tried what Dan suggested but it doesn't work :(
I don't even have a "My Templates" folder in the template organiser
wizard thing. I know it was there in 3.4 but it's no longer there.
I copied the template files to .config/libreoffice/3/user/template then
clicked the Commands button and Update but then got several "templates
already exists" messages and one "Update could not be completed" error.
I've removed all folders from the templates path except the default
(/usr/lib/ something) and then added.config/libreoffice/3/user/template
and set it as the default for adding new templates.
I'm wondering if there is a glitch in the Ubuntu update.
God bless you
