Re: adverse reviews: "we" don't originate the code, but frequently have input to bug reporting oir finding workarounds. Many reviewers have a hidden axe to grind and will always highlight a fault, or some trivial matter that does not suit their predilections. For most of us, Apache OpenOffice 3.4.1 is working quite satisfactorily. But it is your decision to try it or not.

It would help a lot if you could tell us the address of the template file you're working with.
What you need to do depends on exactly what sort of file you have.
If the file you've downloaded is a simple template file (something.ott for a Writer text template), you can install it by:
File > Templates > Organize, select "My Templates" on the left, then Commands > Import Template. Navigate to your downloaded file and OK.
To use the template, File > New > Templates & Documents. Navigate to "My Templates" and you should see the new template listed there.
If you prefer not to mess with it, you actually do not have to install the template at all: just File > Open it. OOo will start a new untitled document that you can customize and save or print.
