To create a template, open LO and create the desired framework such as margins, page breaks, headers, footers, etc. in a normal document.

Under File>Template>Save save the template (I prefer My Templates as the default location) with a your preferred name.

To use a template use File>New>Templates and Documents and select the desired template. It will create a new document based on your template.

I specifically tested this with Writer.

the font type and size in the name. It was very convenient and worked well.
Form some things I used A4 Constantia 12 for example and for others A5
Colibri 14 etc etc. depending on the task.*
