Description 2007-02-09 16:52:32 UTC

I've created several categories of templates. But when I open File > Templates >
Edit, only a generic name SansNom0, SansNom1, etc is shown.
In the dialog, their is a groupuinames.xml files that has the good category
names inside.
Verified also under Win XP both in FR release of 2.1
I'll attach the screen shot of the template category dialog and of the edit
dialog boxes.
Kind regards - Sophie

IMO this bug is severe.
In effect, the name that one gives in the OOo UI, is not set on the file system...
Shouldn't we give a P2 to this one?
I'll attach a doc with screenshots from 2.4-dev (m5)

Hi pb,
May i suggest that issue #68223 is somehow related?
Comment 9 mikhail.voytenko 2008-02-06 09:42:38 UTC
The dialog started using File/Templates/Edit shows currently only a file dialog
that works with file system hierarchy. It was always so.
Letting the dialog work with the template hierarchy would be a new feature.

@mav: You somehow missed the problem. Mybe my description was not clear.

Problem:  If I add a category with the Organizer named 'NewCategory', in the OS'
file explorer, it is named 'Untitled'.

In the attachment (id=42892) you can see the two dialogs.

Changed summary. Was "Name of templates category not shown in edit mode"
Comment 12 mikhail.voytenko 2008-02-06 11:45:13 UTC
The name of the new template category should not be written to the file system.
There is groupuinames.xml file that contains the name for the templates hierarchy.

It is designed so to allow to use arbitrary names for templates hierarchy
independently from the locale supported by file system. The template hierarchy
was never based on the file system names. Now it is possible to use directory
name, if no entry for the directory is provided in the groupuinames.xml. But
currently I see no reason to do it. If you would like to change the behavior,
please submit a new bug. Anyway it has nothing to do with this bug.

This bug was submitted with the description that the edit dialog does not show
the template hierarchy and has nothing to do with the representation of the
template folders in the file system. Sorry, but the change of the title was wrong.
Comment 13 cno 2008-02-06 12:24:15 UTC
Sorry for my misunderstanding.
Is a result from wading through the file system and OOo registry regularly,
looking what happens at both sides (UI and file system).
It seemed very unlogical to me (together with the 2.3.1 numbered template
versions) so I didn't think about a new feature behind what I saw :-)
Comment 14 cno 2008-02-06 12:35:49 UTC
Hmm, re thinking why I had a problem with this.
- I create a category in the UI.
- Start a macro, asking for the user path
    add "/template/mycategory/"
- start document
- > error.

So this is something to keep in mind.
