@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:
Package latest and greatest 18.104.22.168 from
unzipped in ~/Downloads
delete all from ~/.config/libreoffice
apt-get remove --purge libreoffice*
dpkg -i *.deb

When I create a document based on a standard template, template
information is included
Ditto when custom template is used.
When I paste from a source, template information is blanked
Time for Template Changer from

Crash of LO
Looping what is before in order to try 22.214.171.124
Same story, except first hanging and then crashing.
So I installed the distro version 126.96.36.199 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
by part pasted, creating new TOC's, it works without breaking the
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!
