how do I specify a font to open a text file in?

Both Writer and Calc will open a text file in Liberation Sans font, and I want Courier and Ariel respectively to be the default font. This problem starting occurring about 2 or 3 releases ago (that I downloaded) and is very annoying since it a hard to read font.

I tried to do the global settings, but even though the font window says that I set a font (Courier in Writer), they still open up in the bad font. This sometimes occurs on a cut and paste from another file also.

How do I get a default font to stick when I click on a text file to open it in Calc or Writer?
