Description kaisv 2009-11-29 18:24:58 UTC
When generating a new template based on an existing one and saving it, the
template folder isn't automatically chosen as file destination, instead the
unspecific C:\documents and settings\own files (or whatever this is called in
English) is default folder and "odt" default extension to save new file. When
changing "odt" to "ott" to save the file as new template, the folder list
remains the same, leaving the user the right choice of the folder to ensure, the
template is shown in the template list of OO Writer. users might not know where
these templates reside. Pls. change the behaviour such, the template folder is
being chosen when "ott" as extension type is checked.

You should save with "File.Template.Save" from menu to get template folder by
Changing component to "Framework" as long as this topic is also related to Calc
or Draw/Impress template handling.
