Description Javi Barroso 2015-08-11 07:29:48 UTC

I can't find any parameter from man page to create a document from commandline.
I can't find any whishlist bug about that feature.

I would like to be able to:

$ lowriter --create-file mydoc.odt -n ~/Documents/mytemplate.odt
$ # which would open libreoffice with a new doc with filename mydoc.odt and with mytemplate.odt applied
$ # or 
$ lowriter --create-file mydoc.odt # which open a new file called mydoc.odt

Am I missing something ?

Thank you!
