You need to create a "default template" for Calc to set your own personal settings as the base for new spreadsheets. There are three steps.

(1) First, open Calc, and simply save its current settings as your own "template, following this menu sequence:

  • File > Templates > Save as template...
  • then give a name, e.g. calc-noto-sans (or whatever) and
  • Assign to the "My Templates" category. Click OK.

(2) Next, you can use that template to save your personal choices:

  • Go to File > Templates > Manage Templates;
  • find your new calc-noto-sans template; right-click on it, and choose Edit.
  • From menu bar, follow Styles > Manage styles...; then from the panel that opens,
  • right-click on Default, select Modify;
  • click on the Font tab, and make your selections (e.g., Noto Sans, point size, etc.)
  • click OK.
  • Now Save the template, and Close it.

(3) Third and last step: (re-)open Calc, then:

  • Go to File > Templates > Manage Templates;
  • find your calc-noto-sans template; right-click on it,
  • but now choose Set as Default.
  • you'll see a "checkmark" appear with that template.

You can now click "Open", and from now on, all new Calc spreadsheets will open with your own personal defaults set.
