Finding folder on OS X Lion
 
Thank you. In the OpenOffice Save As dialog, I could not browse the full path indicated for Templates at OpenOffice>>Preferences. One of the indicated folders did not display. But ...

... by trial and error, here's what finally worked for me. In Writer, design a template (extension .ott), and save it to the Desktop. Then, still in Writer, open File>>New>>Templates and Documents, and there, at the bottom left, click on "Organize ...". Then, open the folder "My Templates", right-click it, select "Import Template ...", browse to the Desktop, and select the template. That may not be the quickest or most professional way to do it, but it worked.

Is this forum Jeopardy? Can I play?
Ok, um...
What is "I have a problem with a template and a Lion on my Mac"?

Neither post is very amusing. Perhaps you both have forgotten what our guidelines state:

Play nice.

Our community is made up of all kinds of different people, and all of them have the right to feel comfortable. Others may not think the way that you think, believe what you believe, know what you know, or see what you see. Always be polite and respectful in your interactions with others.


Nothing nice to say? Then don't say it.

Well done to the OP to find a solution and then to share it here. I suspect that there is an official way to achieve the objective, but that is a clever solution to find.

Ya, I have already been busted for this.
