Hi :)
1a.  Could someone post a "feature request" (using the bug-reporting
system) to suggest some sort of converter so that old templates can easily
converted to fit the newer system?  (or have i misunderstood about newer vs
older template systems?)

1b.  Even if the newer system can cope with reading the older templates it
would still be better to have the templates converted to the newer system
for the future, of course.  Also it would be really great if it were
possible to automatically upgrade all existing templates at;

2.  Btw does anyone happen to know if all OpenOffice templates held on
their sites have been copied to the LibreOffice site?  Would it be easy to
find out?  IF it is easy then would it be reasonably easy to hunt&find
OpenOffice templates done by 3rd parties and add them to our collection

3.  Going off on a tangent - does anyone know if it might be possible to
convert MS Office templates so that they could be used by both us and by
OpenOffice people?  If so then it might be a great opportunity for TDF to
collaborate with Apache to the benefit of both projects to remove one of
the blockers people occasionally cite as a reason they couldn't possibly
migrate away from MS.

Regards from
Tom :)

Same issue here - I can no longer assign a template to an existing

Documents when working with very large [book like] documents.

Has anyone figured anything else?  Is the support for features like
masters documents fading out of LibreOffice?

In my Fedora 22 Version 4, there is no "File->Templates->Assign template
(current document)" option.
What seems to work for me is to go to Styles and Formatting -> New Style
from Selection -> Load Styles.
The "From File" option at "Load Styles" works nicely if the style isn't a
Does this still work in LO Writer 5?
