How to Add names to the drop down list in Custom properties

asked 2016-09-20 11:18:20 +0100

I use Custom properties in Writer a lot. I would like to add some of my common names to the drop down list of Names in the Custom properties area. That way I can click the arrow at the right side on the Name and select the one I want.

This would also have the benefit of me not completely losing the name I have added if I accidentally scroll while on a Name in the custom properties, I end up with "client", "checked" etc and there is no way back to my custom name

It seems that these names are stored in .res files.

Depending on your locale, e.g.:


These are system files and AFAIK there is no interface provided to manipulate directly.

A "user way" could be to create a template that includes these properties...
