Hello to all

Just to clarify this because I fear that my proposals have been

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".

Could work, but would _introduce_ the opposite problem,
that a user cannot start a new file from a template that
is not in the template repository...

My proposal is:

1. File> Open> Select a .ot(tsg...) file creates a new document
(current behavior, no change)

2. File> Open> Select a .ot(tsg...) file *AND* select type:
"ODF model xxx" edits the model

New behavior that does not introduce the problem raised by Cor:
- user can start a new file from any template
- user can edit any template
- the dialog already has everything that is needed.
(no checkbox or other additional control required).

While I understand what Pierre-Yves discusses, I'd emphasise smthg here.

From a user POV, if I "File / Open / Template" : I want to *open* a template, ie modify it. This is *not* what a user wants on a regular basis. If I "File / New / Template", I guess this should state "File / New / From template", I want to create a *new* document *from* a template. This is what a user wants most of the time.

I guess the words have some weight here.
