If I make a template, then create a document based on it, and then change the template, the document is unchanged. Even if I after changing the template change the document and save it anew, the document is still based on the old template.

If I check automatically update document styles in the templates and plugins window, this does not change spacing in the document. How do I make it update according to the new version of the template? In our case, the template has a large part locked down. If I change the spacing between the nth and (n+1)th editable area in the template, how can I have that reflected in new documents based on documents made with the older version of the template?


Sorry, templates don't work like that. They copy the settings when the document is created and later changes to the template only affect new documents created with the new template.
