Hello Deb, to change the default font in Writer:

  1. choose the menu "Tools : Options..." and select the item "LibreOffice Writer > Basic Fonts (Western)",
  2. in the field called "Default", select your preferred font.

Create your own template with font (and other) settings that you need. Then:

either create new documents on its basis via File → New → Templates,

or make the created template the default template.

I tried doing that. The default style shows Arial 12 now if I open the Default template directly. However if I just open Writer, the template that appears still shows Liberation Serif 12 even though it shows it's the Default style. Please advise.
