Wanda you can set the default fonts for LO documents using
TOOLS>OPTIONS>LibreOffice Writer>Basic Fonts (Western). You can select
any installed Western font as the default font.
If you are pasting from the another document which has its own font,
etc. try using EDIT>PASTE SPECIAL and select unformatted text. LO will
use the document default for the text formatting. When you use the
normal PASTE LO assumes the formatting of the text to be pasted should
override the document defaults.
We like to know version and OS for reference and in case the issue is
specific to a version or OS; normally the issues are not.
