[Solved] How to add libreoffice writer's .docx template to right click menu?

Post by SamLearnsLinux » Thu Apr 18, 2019 5:06 am

I want to add .docx document to my Right click menu > Create New Document so that I can create .docx documents wherever I want

But I am only able to save and create templates in .ott format

Is there a solution to this?

1. Create a new document in Writer.
2. Use "Save As" from the file menu and change the format to .docx and give it a name you want.
3. Put the file in the Templates directory in your home directory.

Just a regular file. Templates directory doesn't do anything magical; it's just a directory with files that will copied to where you create a new file of that type.

You can also structure your Templates directory with subdirectories, which will appear as a submenu in the create new document context menu.
