On LO 3.5: Tools>Options> (In the lefthand pane)LibreOffice Writer>Basic Fonts (Western)
Make you choices and press the 'Default' button. If things don't change, check you default template.

In my libreoffice Writer the dafault font color isn't the black, but a dark grey.
How can I set the black as default color?

My libreoffice writer doesn't have the black as default color of the font. So I have to choose it manually, why? What can I do to have the black as default color?

Check Apply replacement table
Select the font you want to replace and select the new font you want to use
Don't change your default font to Arial. According to Wikipedia, it is "a proprietary typeface to which Monotype Imaging owns all rights, including copyright, design and trademark rights." I suggest you use the font Arimo instead. All its letters are the same widths as Arial's, and it is free software, released under the SIL Open Font License.

Does anyone know how to do this in LO 4? I used to use the answer in the top reply from visctrix but that option does not appear to be there and I have not been successful in adding the menu option in Writer. I really don't like Times New Roman and my ability to change the default is what has been keeping me from upgrading to 4 on all of my machines. Any help would be appreciated.
