Open Office


Hi all,

I created and open office doc file and saved that as ott (i.e. with .ott extention). Every time when I open this file, it opens as something like "Untitled 01" instead of its original name.
How I can open and open office .ott file without this issue?

Thanks.

You don't. Mainly because an .ott file is an openofice template, used to create new documents. Like "Untitled 01".

.odt is the document file extension.

Go to the OpenOffice website (or LibreOffice if you've actually got that one) and there's a documentation section where you can download free manuals. The Writer manual is a 500 page illustrated pdf book! The chapters cover program basics, editing, formating, printing and exporting, styles, graphics, tables, templates, mail-merge, contents and index, master documents, fields, and maths.

Templates are really useful and worth learning about, if you often want to produce a document with a standard set of page, paragraph, or heading types.
