i followed the oo instructions for creating a template ie a letter, i saved it as suggested and when i went back to it and selected it sure enough it came up ok, my problem is that when i used it and sent it i no longer had a template, i am aware of the ms office feature where you select and use it but there is always another available, have i missed something or is open office not capable of this?
I have just tried to create a letter template, which worked fine, and saved it as a template. I then opened it and used it, not in anger but merely as a test and again it worked fine. I then closed everything out and went back in and the template came up when requested.
Just as a matter of interest, I notice my templates are kept in C:\Docs & Settings\My Name\Application Data\Open Office.Org2\user\template. Are yours kept in the same directory or are they somewhere else, which is perhaps where the problem is coming from. It is the first time I have used OO on this new machine and the directory was set up during the installation by my supplier.
the directory is the same, i must be doing something wrong but cant think what, i know i am not as proficient as others which is prob where i am going wrong, audeal you are not righ as that is exactly what is happening on has a once use only as it is not there on returning to location, thanks to all so far
