I installed LibreOffice 3.3.2 on a CentOS 5.4 and just copied the template tree from OpenOffice into the similar location of LibreOffice (see listing below), but the templates are not accessible (visible) within LO.
In order to use the templates I need to move them all into one folder under /opt/libreoffice/basis3.3/share/template, but then the hierarchy of them is completely destroyed.
Just a note: with OpenOffice 3.2.1 and previous versions the tree was completely accessible and all templates and folders in all subfolders were visible.
Anyone an idea on how to get that fuunctionality back?

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

I used all previous versions of LO in openSUSE and did not have such problem.
Unfortunately with LibreOffice 3.5.3 some thing like this is available.
The behaviour of the dialogue form form File --> Template --> Template management is strange. I got some error messages and templates are not visible even they are there.
Also new templates can not be iported using this dialogue form.
Sorry I did a missprint. The faulty version of Libre office is 3.5.0 but not 3.5.3
Dear bug submitter!
Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.
To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement
Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.
I dig up that old bug and ask the question whether it's intended that sub-folders of the template folder are ignored and that their content isn't shown in the template manager?
Should users do the arrangement in the template manager instead of underlying the folder structure? But I haven't found any options to have a hierarchical ordering in the template manager.
let's ask the UX-team...
Jay, what do you think?
Templates are pulled from the main template folder (e.g. ~/Templates) and its sub folders (e.g. ~/Templates/Presentations), but not sub sub folders (e.g. ~/Templates/Presentations/Google).
Samuel and Akshay attempted to make sub sub folders work during the redesign of the template manager, but were unable to do so.
