I updated 3.5 RC3 (marked as stable download) from the German LO-Downloadsite over an existing 3.4.3 installation.
First of all I could create a new document from my user defined templates.
I renamed my old user profile copied my templates from the defect profile to the new and started LO-quickstart again.
Now I could start the "New from Template"-Dialog. But I have no symbols for drawing-templates.
I cleaned up registry and made a "repair"-installation with no result.
Enclosed find the zipped user profile of the former 3.4.3 installation.
Sorry, ZIP-File was to big. I posted a link to the file on google docs. I hope it works
Please contribute a short step by step instruction (due to example in Bug 43431) how to reproduce your problem after having replaced the own user profile by your one.
We had some modifications with 3.5 <http://ask.libreoffice.org/question/254/no-recent-documents-list-> comment cloph (Feb 23), so I doubt that it can work with simply replacing user profile by one from 3.4.
Sorry, there is an error in my descriprition.
I wrote "First of all I could create a new document from my user defined templates."
I wanted to write that I could NOT create a new document from a my user defined templates.
It could be a dup of fdo#46155 (see https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=46155). Anyway without further information, we can't investigate on this so put it to WFM.
However, if you reproduce the problem, don't hesitate to attach your buggy LO directory profile zipped there: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Bugzilla-Attachments
