Hi :)

Tools - Options - Paths

to see where LibreOffice is looking for your templates.  Hopefully you can edit that to look in the 
right place.  It is better to have your templates inside your /home along with all the rest of your 
users data and settings.  The full address for the 3.5.x branch is something like


Note that inside 
you will see a lot of folders.  Each program has a folder in there for it's own settings and 
configurations.  Some are still in /home/username but are moving to the newer place to reduce 
congestion and confusion.  

Note that username should be replaced by your own user-name, the one you login with.  Don't change 
the 3/user part tho!  
Regards from
Tom :)

       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.
