Problem description: 
I can no longer create documents based on templates in 3.5. This worked OK (sort of!) in 3.4.5

Steps to reproduce:
1- Menu: File->New->Templates and Documents
2- Error box 'Error creating a new document templates already exists'. Click OK
3- Templates and Documents - New Document window appears. Does not contain path to my templates (this path is correct in the options).
4- Any action throws up the error box in 2-
5- Opening a new doc by double clicking the template also shows the error box, the works after clicking OK.

Current behavior:
Templates unusable

Expected behavior:
Shouold be able to open a new doc based on a template.
