Hi :)
The published official guides are much better

The in-built help (at least the English version of it) is not always completely up to date or 
accurate.  The international translators team work at it before translating it and i don't think 
their version is the one we get.  There is something mighty odd going on there which i've never

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Setting default template

Trying to set a default template.  I modified some styles and want to make them my default styles. 
I have followed the instructions in the help file as detailed below.  It doesn't work for me.  
Steps 1-3, no problem.  Step 4 is unclear at best and seemingly inaccurate at worst.  After step 3 
the "My Templates" category cannot be selected or "entered".  The "button" is inoperative.  I used 
the file name "myTemplate" (no extension) for my newly saved template name.

Since I can't do step 4, I'm unclear as to whether step 5 is a continuation from step 4, or if it 
means to close the template manager (the only option available to me) and then proceed fresh from 
the File menu.  I did the only thing possible, proceed fresh from the File menu, but *_there is no 
"Templates" submenu under "File"_*.  I include a couple of screenshots further below.  The first 
one shows that there is no "templates" submenu, only "save as template".  The second one shows the 
template manager screen where I'm unable to select/push the "My Templates" button, which you can't 
actually see that I can't select it, but at least you know I'm where I say I am.

So.... anyone know why it's not working for me?  I will point out that 1) it's an HTML file and 2) 
I'm using writer/web.  Perhaps that's the reason?  Maybe someone could check and see if it works 
for them under those conditions?

Thank you in advance.
