Automatically load Writer with a footer

Postby Nathanam » Wed Apr 09, 2008 2:38 am

Is it possible to load up open office Writer and have a default footer with a path/file name format appear at the bottom :?:


Is it possible that when you start up writer it will show a template first (one that has been saved) and not the blank document :?:

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you read the Forum Survival Guide?
Please don't post multiple copies of the same question. I have removed the other two.

Also, we encourage everyone to try a search first. Just enter a couple of words in the search box (top right).

E.g. "default template" will get you lots of posts asking this same question, as well as this one: [Tutorial] Creating a new default template

I think that will cover both of your questions--if not, just add on to this thread.

I to would like to have a insert a footter with path/file name.
I see the default footer options but I do not see how set path/file name.
Once I have it as a footer it is no problem to save as default template.
Please help or direct how to solve

Insert>Fields>Others (or CTRL+F2) in the Document tab, select File name and chose the format you want.

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
