Description

This extension will add two new items to the File Templates menu:

New menu items are:

  • File Templates Change template (current document)...

  • File Templates Change template (folder)...

In both cases you have the choices:

  • set a template (which replaces a former one)

  • deactivate the template: future changes of the template will not affect the document

  • reactivate the template: changes of the template will again affect the document

  • cut the connection to template completely

There is a help in English, German and French, available from buttons in the dialogs.

This extension didn’t work for some years, the extension DocumentTemplateChanger was a substitute, now it is possible to add a new version to the original extension. Please remove an old installation with version less than 2.0.0 manually if there is one.

    Using LibreOffice 6.3 or 6.4 & template changer 2.0 on OSX, it works for me on single files, but I am unable to get it to work on folders. The list of templates is blank and I cannot select input/output folders.
