Does LibreOffice have any sort of functionality to link documents to a template, or to update documents that have been created based on a template when the template changes. This is best explained with an example: If I create a template with all my styles in it, and then I decide I want to modify some of the styles in the template after I have already created a number of documents using that template, is there a way to automatically update styles in the documents that are based on the template?
I hope this is clear
Place your template in a folder, which is described Path-Templates (Tools-Options-LibreOffice-Paths). This is most easily done by opening the template for editing and choose File-Templates-Save. Documents created on the basis of this template will contain the name of the template in their properties (File-Properties, bottom line on the General tab). When you open a document, the office suite check the styles in the template and the document and, if discrepancies are found, propose to update the styles in the document.
