My computer has somehow gotten out of sync. I can save a document as a template in a directory of my choosing, but when I go to use the Templates and Documents dialog, I get this:

templates and documents dialog

I have no idea where on my hard drive these folders are. Where is "Templates/My Templates"?

You should find them at:

~/.openoffice.org/3/user/template

If you have OpenOffice 2, then replace 3 with 2 in the above path.

This location can also be moved. Navigate to Tools - Options - OpenOffice.org - Paths and change the value for "Templates". There can be multiple template paths, or, you can delete the existing path and create a new one altogether.
