This tutorial will show how to use templates in LibreOffice Calc. I will show how to download a template, import it, use it and manage it in LibreOffice Calc.
Templates are a great way to extend the functionality of LibreOffice. Huge numbers of community developed free LibreOffice Calc templates available in extensions.libreoffice.org/templates/.
Download any Calc template you want and save it in your computer. For this tutorial, I have downloaded Calendar Creator template.
Template files are having .ots (ODF Spreadsheet Template) extension which is used by LibreOffice Calc spreadsheet applications.
To open the manage templates dialog, from the menu choose
File -> Templates -> Manage. On the Template Manager Dialog, go to Spreadsheet Tab and click My Templates.
Using Import button, choose the template .ots file you have downloaded. Template manager will import the .ots file and you can see it under My Templates. Select the template and click open.
It might take a moment to load the template, once loaded you can see the template in Calc workspace. Now you can save it as .ods files and your use.
This is how you can download and use a Calc spreadsheet template in LibreOffice. Feel free to leave a comment or if you are looking for something else using comment box down below.
