[Solved] Install template...How do I open it in OpenOffice

Postby Scotty5150 » Sat Jul 20, 2013 4:59 am

I finally got the basic resume template installed into Open Office. I open File...New...Templates and Documents. Basic-resume is listed in the Title box. It has that puzzle symbol. I click it then click Open. The Extension Manager box opens and basic-resume.oxt is listed. Then a smaller box saying "That version is already installed." I click ok or cancel which does not matter its already installed. It is an endless loop because I end up right back where I started. Opening File and New again, etc. What am I doing wrong?

Where did you get this resume file from? This sounds like an extension which is different from a template file. The .oxt is for an extension.

The two resume templates I found on the Extensions site were files, not extensions. IE downloaded them with the .zip file name extension and Firefox downloaded one with the .odt file name extension and the other with the .ott file name extension. I couldn't find a basic-resume extension. The basic-resume may be just a template file, not an extension. Try changing the file name extension from .oxt to .ott.

When you open Office then Templates it gives you a link to Get more templates online...I saved the zip as .ott. I must have misread another post. I got it to work and really appreciate the feedback.
