Description antonbijl 2003-10-22 16:30:28 UTC
Whenever a new document of any type (I've tested this only with spreadsheets 
and text documents, but I assume the same will apply to the other apps) is 
created, the default template is used. This works 100% when using the File => 
New => XXXX shortcut from OOo. It also works 100% when using shortcuts on the 
Windows Start menu. However, it doesn't work when you right click in a windows 
explorer window and select New => 1.1.0 XXXX. This causes the 
specified document type (XXXX) to be opened, but without the default template 
applied. Instead it looks as if the OOo defaults are used.

Sorry, let me rephrase that last bit:

When you right-click inside a folder (as in the part of the window 
where the folder contents are displayed) windows explorer and then 
select New => 1.1.0 XXXX, a document of the selected 
type (XXXX) is created (NOT opened). If you then subsequently open 
the document, you will notice that the default template has not been 
applied, but instead the OOo defaults seem to have been used as

After talking to MBA I changed this issue from DEFECT to ENHANCEMENT
and lowered the priority to 4. When someone creates a document via the
contextmenu in Win Explorer, the standard registered templates
(/documents and settings/<user>/templates/...) are used instead of
those, the user has created himself. This behaviour may be discussed
to be changed in an upcoming version. As a workaround the existing
templates within the above mentioned folder can be replaced by the
"new" ones.

This is a duplicate of Issue 61713. A work around is given in the later.
