I want my new documents to open with my preferred font. I have tried altering the font settings as listed in various tutorials, such as going to Tools → Options → LibreOffice Writer → Basic Fonts (Western), changing the fonts, and applying the settings. This only seems to work for each individual document, and will not carry over to new documents.
I figured out how to create a Template, but it only seems to work when I create a Writer document from the LibreOffice Launcher in my Start Menu. The template is also set to be the default template.
Windows Button → LibreOffice → Writer Document.
It does not work if I create a Writer document by right clicking the desktop, selecting new, and selecting OpenDocument Text.
Right Click Desktop → New → OpenDocument Text.
I am currently using Windows 10. I have also noticed that when I create a document through the start menu it is titled “Untitled 1” and if I create a document by right clicking the desktop it is titled “New OpenDocument Text.”
Apparently this is related to Bug 133661.
I am still unsure as to how to proceed from here. It seems I need to fix the shell menu, which seems like a pretty advanced fix. All I wanted was to open a document with my preferred font.
