Just upgraded to LO 3.5. Having problem with existing templates, when I try to access existing templates [I can see them in win explorer] I keep getting error message “Error creating a new document; templates already exists” and will not show my templates, which are in both directories shown in Tools-Options-LibreOffice-Paths. I have tried removing one of the paths–does not help.
Previous upgrades from LO 3.3 to 3LO 3.4 did not have this problem, Templates were just transferred. Request to open a new writer document just brought up window with list of my templates.
