I can't use "Save As Template..." (under File > Templates) to save a template. Having highlighted the template file (set as default) I want to overwrite, I click "Save" and nothing happens. I close and reopen Writer and it shows the old template.
I have tried it in Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+

I have used File > Templates > Save as Template. If I enter the template name of the current default template, LibreOffice ask whether I want to overwrite it and in case of 'yes' the newly saved templates becomes the default template automatically.
The step "highlighted the template file (set as default)" is wrong in your workflow. Instead use the 'save' icon in the Template Manager without selecting any existing template, and then enter the name of the existing default template into the name box.

I see. Thanks. The current way is not user-friendly though. Now I see what Bug 95402 is all about.
