Description Cor Nouws 2014-02-04 13:17:19 UTC
Open template manager
Click New folder "foo folder" OK
Select folder
 > Button Remove is not available
Select different folder
 > Button Remove ís available ..

Fiddle around a bit, close, open, select this and that folder ...
Mostly the Remove button is there, sometimes it isn't

When I have my "foo folder" displayed as the only one, Remove seems to be available consistently ..

I can reproduce this behavior, tested using LibreOffice

@Dominique Boutry: that's due the fact you're not in the Root folder (you're currently in 'Presentation Backgrounds'. Try to click on 'All templates'.

@Cor: isn't this bug a dupe of Bug 70692 ?
Looks like you have to click twice in some situations, before continuing.

Kind regards,

Well, it does give the pop-up, asking for confirmation...
But definitely, the code lost it's way to the right view ;)

** Please read this message in its entirety before responding **

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

   Test to see if the bug is still present on a currently supported version of LibreOffice (4.4.2 or later)

   If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the version of LibreOffice and your operating system, and any changes you see in the bug behavior
 If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a short comment that includes your version of LibreOffice and Operating System

Please DO NOT

   Update the version field
   Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
   Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so: 1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3)


2. Test your bug 3. Leave a comment with your results. 4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to "inherited from OOo"; 4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add "regression" to keyword

Feel free to come ask questions or to say hello in our QA chat: http://webchat.freenode.net/?channels=libreoffice-qa

Thank you for your help!

Currently I only reproduce that after creating a new folder, another has to be selected first, before Delete becomes available for the new folder.
That's a minor minor issue, so I close this as WorksForMe
