Description Oliver Grimm 2019-05-27 12:24:22 UTC
Unfortunately it is not possible to select a dotx (MS Word) template as standard template in Writer.

Opening and using dotx templates in general works fine here. Just one cannot set them as standard template.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. from main menu select file | templates | managege templates
2. click "import"
3. select a category in the dialog window
4. in the fil chooser dialog first select "fil etype: all files"
5. pick a dotx (Word template) with the file chooser
6. click "open"
7. the dotx template will appear in the templates' list
8. right click the dotx template and select "set as standard" from the context menu

Actual Results:
no effect; the standard template remains the previous one.

Expected Results:
Expected behaviour is that setting a dotx template should work the same way as using an ott template. At least there should be an error messge, if using a dotx template as standard is not possible

Reproducible: Always
