Opening dotx templates from file manager

Post by Goghard »

I use dotx files (with “t”) to save my templates. That way, I can copy them in a USB stick and use them in other computers. Also, dotx files are useful for sharing my templates with colleagues.

When I double click a dotx file in a file manager, the expected behaviour is that the word processor opens a new document based on the template. However, when I double click on the dotx template in my system, TextMaker opens the file as if it were a regular docx document.

Is it possible to make TextMaker to open a new document based on a dotx template when opening it from a file manager, instead of opening the template as a regular document?

Normally, whenever you open any DOTX file by double-clicking in file manager, TextMaker creates a new file based on this template.

Please try this process with any other file manager and also check if you are getting this problem with all DOTX files or with this specific one only?
