Allowing multiple levels in the hierarchy is only a plan ATM as there is still some work to do on it to have it working. Local templates are also not supposed to have more than 2 levels of hierarchy and this is defined by the UNO API for handling templates (not the template manager). > The dialog seems to support only a two level hierarchy, so it's not > compatible with the current template manager folder structure. It is completely compatible: the folder structure for local template hasn't changed. > 61396 - FILEOPEN: [Template Manager]Possibility to > edit a template that > is not in the repository, is lacking > > > > I saw a comment with the proposal : > "when a user does "Open" from the "File" menu and selects a > template, then LO should open the template" ; instead of > creating a new file from the template". > It seems to be a coherent behavior : the user selects the > command "open" so LO must open.
