Observed in LinuxMint 17.2 and OpenSuse 13.1, LibreOffice 5.0.3 RC1 and 126.96.36.199 respectively.
Yep, that's true..
The location ./config/libreoffice/X/user/autotext holds .bau files and one would assume that it's not too hard to import other stuff in that.
OTOH, creating AutoText in Writer is rather easy.
Isn't it just a service to make importing MsWord AutoText easy and fast (immagine you have many of them in old template projects..) ?
But a nice enhancement.
not sure - maybe Writer or FrameWork or Filters&Storage is better as component
Importing AutoText doesn't mean importing a random text document as a single auto text.
It imports a collection of text blocks stored within the doc/dot file.
It would certainly make sense to add a similar importer for the glossary part in docx/dotx files.
Ah yes, docx too.
Not to mention DOTM, which is used for the standard template these days (at least in Word 2013).
Importing AutoText from .dotx and .dotm is possible after:
