As I open the writer by a document the program says the used template is
outdated and asks whether I want to take the current template or not. 

Unfortunately the alert is a modal window. That means I can't scroll in the
document. So there is no way to find out which is the best answer. 

OK, I truly hate these alerts, which block everything until you click at least
on the cancel-button. You have absolute no information about what you are doing.
So in your practice of using software you just press randomly one button. 

Why can't be this alert a normal one, which only floats above ? 

So you can find out which version of the document you have an which template you
want to use.
