Description Mirko 2021-11-02 10:04:25 UTC
Description:
Action: Remove a template directory* from the settings

If the user have RW on folder:
LO provide to ERASE (!!!) templates from the folder.


If the user have only R on folder:
Files stand still (of course).
Then if you try to restore the folder, templates become invisible and not avaiable.

*a shared folder in the network

Steps to Reproduce:
1. remove a directory on the shared network from the template directory settings
2. (if you have RW) try to explore if the templates file are still there
3. (if you have R) add again the same directory

Actual Results:
1. directory is removed
2. template files have been erased
3. no templates are shown in the template manager (update funztion doesn't affect this)

Expected Results:
1. directory is removed
2. template are stand still
3. templates are shown in the template manager


Reproducible: Always


User Profile Reset: No



Additional Info:
Yeah I am sorry this is not a BUG but a more a defective action where own files are unproperly erased by LO

Mirko, nobody could confirm your bug for more than a year. Since a new major release from LO is available, I'd like to ask you to test with the new LO version 7.5. Can you still reproduce the bug?
