Description Steve 2019-10-05 03:09:12 UTC
It would seem that template changes are only detected if the file type is .odt

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new text document and use an existing user template.
2. Save the document and exit.
3. Modify and save the user template.
4. Re-open the text document

Actual Results:
1. If I had originally saved the document in Word 97-2003(.doc) format the template change is not detected
2. If I had originally saved the document in .odt format the change is detected.

Expected Results:
I expect the two scenarios to be processed in a similar manner, i.e. in both cases a message is displayed saying that the dependent template has changed, asking me what I want to do about it.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No
