I use the right click menu or edit in the toolbar. I've never used styles or templates, as I don't really understand them, and just want to be able to take notes and write things down for myself and my kids. (I homeschool, so I'm always writing something and printing them out.) I have LO 3.4.4 and Mac OS X 10.6.8 Hope this helps.
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.

I choose a font, but it changes on me. I cut or copy and paste, and the font changes, even though I copy the exact same thing. Times New Roman seems to be the dictator here. And the size always changes. Lines will suddenly become a 24 pt rather than 11 that Iusuallyuse.What paste method are you using?The spaces between lines and paragraphs will change, and I can't change them back. Most of the time I can't even use the backspace to move awordup to the last line. And I can't move the first word (indent it). If I click on a word that starts in the wrong place, there are no little triangles up in the top ruler, so I can't move the line or paragraph. There are other things, too, but if you can help with this, maybe allwillbe fixed.You may want to modify the styles used and update the default templateI understand that I may have done something unawares, so I thank you beforehand.
