I imagine this has been answered before but is there any support for saving a document as a Word 2000 document template (.dot)? I have no problems assigning Writer as the default application to open files with the .dot extension, but when I go to save, it pops up a Save As dialog and Word template is not an option. I'd hate to think I have to save as a .doc and manually edit the extension every time I save a Word template.

This is the way I do it.

1) Save the file as MS doc. (Save as... filename.doc)
2) Rename "filename.doc" to "filename.dot"

When you save the file, uncheck the "Automatic file name extension" box, then enter the full file name including the .dot extension.

I see idole obviously hasn't bothered to read as far as the line
