Description Bastián Díaz 2015-09-25 04:37:46 UTC
System:
Fedora 22 64 bti xfce
LibreOffice 5.0.1.2 81898c9f5c0d43f3473ba111d7b351050be20261

Steps to reply:
- Open new text document
- Select "Styles and Formatting" in the sidebar
- Select Load Styles | From File

Actual result:
In the dialog you can only select ODF (and template) files and OpenOffice.org 1.0 (and template) files.

Expected result:
In addition to ODF and OpenOffice.org 1.0 formats to load styles from master documents (and templates).

Cheers

Hi Bastián,

For me it works if I simply type the file name in the box...
Could you please try that?

But i think we can agree that it would be better if Master documents were listed in the File types list?

Cheers - Cor

It took me a while to find this.
It works if active native LibreOffice dialogs (open/save).

I think that would help a lot.

Thanks for your time.
