In recent documents, the template name is not appearing in File > Properties > General > Template. Is that a glitch that only I am experiencing, an intentional change, or a bug?

Is there a way to get the name to appear without going into the XML files?

Hmm - my version of LibreOffice ( on Linux openSUSE 15.0) shows the template name, if using one. If the document ist not being created from a template, it doesn't show a template name.

Oh, I see. I assumed that every document is based on a template, as in Word. It did not occur to me that a document could not have a template. Now it makes sense. Thank you.

I'm having the same issue on both installed and portable on Windows 7 64 bit. I created my file from a custom template in my documents, so I know it used a template.

Also, I am trying to create templates that reference templates and want to know if this is possible. EX Template I created a document template (index.ott) with background and headers/footers. I want to reference this template into another template for memos, invoices, etc. If I update the index.ott file, I want it propagated throughout the other templates. Right now, its a tedious copy and past to update the templates
