Filed under
LibO

If you’re a LibreOffice power user, you’ve probably ventured into the realm of templates. But, if you’ve upgraded to LibreOffice 5, you’ve probably noticed a few minor changes to the way this feature is managed. It’s not a profound or game-changing shift, but a shift nonetheless.

So, sit back and prepare to discover that feature which will make your time with LibreOffice exponentially easier.
