Templates - Save as Template

From Apache OpenOffice Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Elliot realises she shops mostly for the same stuff every week, yet never manages to remember everything. Why not make a shopping-list template with all the regular items pre-filled?

  • She starts with a blank document and types in the regular items like milk, bottled water, cereal etc.
  • She brings up the save as dialog by selecting the File>Save As item.
  • From the File Type selector, she picks 'OpenDocument Text Template' and the output folder changes to where OpenOffice expects templates to be (~/.ooo-2.0/user/template/).
  • She names her template 'Shopping List' and saves.

The shopping list template shows up in the template list next time she tries to create a new document with File>New Text Document.
