I write much and I use spreadsheets fairly extensively.

I've changed my global default Writer font and size (to Liberation Serif, 9pt), but I've not found a way to set my default paragraph indent, spacing, and letting: In Writer, I'd like to have a "global" default 0.15-inch first-line indent, 0.10-inch below-paragraph spacing, and 108-percent line-spacing (and the ability to edit the other global defaults).

My default font in Calc is Liberation Sans (which I find to be very good; I wish there were a fixed-pitch version of it, as I have to resort to Courier 10 for some data, although that doesn't offer the font aesthetic I prefer); I'd like to have global default cell margins of 0.1pt top, 0.1pt bottom, and 0.4pt left and 0.4pt right). I'm sure those values will differ for other users; the current global default is 0.1pt on each side.

I can set the defaults in Writer or in Calc on a per-document basis, but I'd really like the ability to make the setting for each a global default unless/until I change it for a specific document.

Is there any way to do this? Thanks!

See for example The same principle applies to default style in Calc - or other elements of LibreOffice.
