Description Aron Budea 2019-02-05 16:32:15 UTC
In Writer's save dialog's dropdown there's no entry for Word 2007-2019 Template format. Recently (after 6.2) an Office Open XML Text Template entry has been added, but an entry for a Word 2007-2019 one is still missing.

DOTX save was added with the following commit. Vasily, do you think the corresponding entry/format (I don't know what exactly is missing) could be added here easily?

sw: support for saving into .dotx file

I confirm, that this option is missing I can't imagine, that anybody is against this enhancement => NEW

Agree, I've fixed this issue. Instead of "Office Open XML Text Template" right now "Word 2007-2019 Template" should be visible during export.
