Hi Devs,

    Sorry to interrupt, just to confirm, were you aware of some
    changes to the menu item File->Template (it seemed gone since

    The background is we were talking about vp.6 in a regression test case:


    And if we ever removed the menu, we will update the test
    case as well. Thanks for your confirmative information:)

Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for the thorough review of the testing :) Yes, I found the
    submenu seems gone on my 4.x build as well. The case may need update
    since it was written based on the 3.6.x build.

    Referring to your question, "vp" means "verify point", vp.1
    appended to a step indicates the "expected result" will start with
    numbering 1, eg.:

    In English // steps

        Launch LibreOffice main program (vp. 1)
        Click on the "File" menu (vp. 2 vp. 3)

    In English // expected result

        1. The welcome window should be appeared
        2. These menu items should be activated: New, Open, Recent Documents, Wizards, Close, Templates, Exit

Best wishes,
