[Solved] Transfering Customized Templates to other computers

Postby johnas » Thu Oct 07, 2010 2:15 pm

I use the latest version of OO.o under Windows 7 Professional on my main computer. In Writer I have set up several custom document templates (under My Templates). I have the same version of OO.o installed on two other computers under Windows Vista and Windows XP respectively. Is there any way of transfering my custom templates to my other computers (e.g. by copying a particular file to a memory stick and thence to a particular place on the target computers) rather than having to set them up from scratch on each computer?

Just copy the template files. They're in the Template folder in your user profile.

Note that it's better to import them with the File>Templates>Organize dialog. I think that the template declaration is also written in other configuration files of the profile (but I've never really investigated that).

I'm not sure that a mere copy and paste works directly.
