It needs to be done somewhat differently per-component.

Writer

  1. Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > Basic Fonts (Western) > set fonts as required.
  2. For Asian and Complex Text Layout (CTL) fonts Tools > Options > Language Settings > Languages > check the options for these languages > click OK. Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > Basic Fonts (Asian) and Basic Fonts (CTL) > set fonts as required.[1]

Calc

  1. Sidebar > Styles and Formatting panel > right-click on the Default cell style > Modify... > Font tab > set fonts as required > click OK.
  2. File > Templates > Save as Template... > select location > click Save > enter a meaningful name > click OK.
  3. File > Templates > Manage > select location > Spreadsheet tab > select template > click Set as Default.

Impress

  1. Sidebar > Styles and Formatting panel > there is no base style, so you will likely have to edit the Title, Subtitle, Notes, and Outline N presentation styles as indicated above for Calc. Perhaps also consider editing the Default image style.[2]
  2. Save to template (as above for Calc).
  3. Set template as the default (as above for Calc but under the Presentations tab).

    Draw

  4. Sidebar > Styles and Formatting panel > edit the Default image style[2] as indicated above for Calc.

  5. Save to template (as above for Calc).
  6. Set template as the default (as above for Calc but under the Drawings tab).

[1] Enhancement fdo#33743 is the related report to get these "Basic Fonts" options added to Calc, Impress, and Draw.

[2] Be aware that there are reports as to the effectiveness of the Default image style to propagate settings to child styles. You may need to also edit font settings for required child styles prior to saving templates for Impress / Draw.
