We found a 'work around'. If we open the template directly from where it is
stored on the network, the input fields stop and ask the user for the
appropriate data. However, this is a step backwards, and is extremely slow.
In LO 3.5.5 we were able to create a menu item that would open the templates
correctly (Tools, Customize, New Document from Template). When we do that
in LO 4.0. the template will open, but won't prompt for input. If we change
the way the menu opens the template (Tools, Customize, Open, Template
Manager), the template will open correctly. The catch is, if the user then
opens a regular document, then tries to open another template, the default
directory goes to the last place that the file was opened from. The users'
files are stored on a different server than the LO application files. Any
ideas how we can get around this? Hopefully speed up the opening of LO 4 in
a Windows network environment?
Have you had any luck with this? Sorry you haven't had any answers so far
but hopefully someone here might be able to figure it out.
Apols and regards from

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Moving Templates from 3.5.5 to 4.0
Windows XP, SP3
I created numerous templates in LO 3.5.5. I created the letter/template and inserted input fields
that would stop and ask the user to input the
appropriate data. Worked real well in LO 3.5.5.
We are hoping to upgrade to version 184.108.40.206, but when we try to copy or
import the templates, they don't stop at the input fields to prompt the user to input the data.
We have tried to retype the letters/templates, inserting input fields, to no avail. Is there a way
to get the template to stop and prompt the user for
each input box?
