After updating to Xubuntu 18.04 I was quite surprised to find out that
ott templates are not linked to documents any more.
It might be, that now the templates are not where the document expects
it. The information about the template is in a node meta:template in the
file meta.xml in the document package. [You know, that a document is
actually a zip-container?]
Now compare, whether the path, which is listed in the file, would go to
the template in your LibreOffice installation.
@regina, thanks. node meta:template in file meta.xml was not found. I
assume this is what is also shown in File > Properties > Tab General >
No Template Changer AND no linked templates is a show stopper, so back
from 6.n to 5.n and since this did not help much:

Same story, except first hanging and then crashing.
So I installed the distro version 184.108.40.206 again without Template Changer.
What I did now, is very carefully paste information from documentation.
Added a field with template information for controlling the link. Part

Considering the large amount of documents I maintain, it is all in all
quite frustrating, but with a little progress fortunately.
If I do grep on an unzipped and empty document with template
grep -r -i "template-name" *
I get only one result in meta.xml
Maybe a stupid question, but does changing template information directly
in meta.xml help in cases where I loose template links? In that case,
BASH doing unzip sed and zip might be a hackish solution.
All suggestions appreciated very much!
