Description Miha 2021-03-14 14:00:38 UTC
I would highly recommend to extend functionality “select template”
to more easy find and install templates from web.
This is important in the first impression for first users.

I was teaching kids, who know M$ before, and it was quite offten on first LibreOffice run “What, here are so little templates available :(”

Steps to Reproduce:

1. File
2. Manage templates
3. Templates manager

or in Impress on fresh install, every time Impress is opened.

Actual Results:
Only buildin templates

If you click in that dialog "Extensions" it opens all extensions from all LibreOffice programms not only templates for example Impress.
So first user thinks this is not the window for aditional templates and closes it.
If in dealog "Extensions" you try to type some template on the web isn't able to find many off them. (In Impress only those taged "Presentations"(Tags[]=86) and not "Impress"(Tags[]=48)

Expected Results:
Build in templates & easy option to search/install online templates:

Impress(Impress): https://extensions.libreoffice.org/?Tags%5B%5D=43&Tags%5B%5D=118
Impress(Presentations): https://extensions.libreoffice.org/?Tags%5B1%5D=86&Tags%5B0%5D=118
Writer: https://extensions.libreoffice.org/?Tags%5B%5D=44&Tags%5B%5D=118
Calc: https://extensions.libreoffice.org/?Tags%5B%5D=48&Tags%5B%5D=118

Reproducible: Always

Not sure if this needs a separate ticket or can be treated as duplicate of bug 137474 requesting the possibility of multiple tags.
