Hi :)
Brilliant!!  It's rare to see someone put that effort in to finding out and helping other people.  
Obviously there are a few people (such as Dan, Brian, Alex, Jay, Regina, hmmm, quite a few) and 
it's good to see someone possibly joining their ranks :)
Nicely done!
Congrats and regards from
Tom :)

The answer suddenly dawned on
 me.  I believe it was Brian Barker that actually provided the solution to my problem, so he gets 
90% of the credit.  As he suggested to me, create a template.  I think that might work for you too. 
 If he's willing, Brian would be a better guide on how to do that than I.

That's very kind of you, but I must protest!  I don't recognise this description, and whoever 
really did you this favour deserves all that credit, not me.

(Frustratingly, I cannot find his wonderful explanation to me. ...

Er, neither can I!

Turns out it was Dan.  Sorry about that Dan (and Brian)!  I trust you don't mind if I repost your 
explanation of how to use templates?

Anne - Perhaps you'll be able to adapt it to your situation. There's some help in the help file - 
use "defaults;fonts" as your search string.  If that's not
 enough, maybe Dan (or anyone else) can help you.  Or, I could be wrong about the solution.

Dan wrote in a different thread:

I think your subject points to what you want: the term "Default". You need a default template 
with the styles you use regularly.
       What you need to do is to create a Writer document with the styles that you want to use. 
You will need to use an empty line for each paragraph style you want and apply a style on each 
      You also need to look at Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Paths. There Templates has two 
paths listed separated by a semi-colon. The latter is the path where you want to save your 
document as a template.
  Then save the document as a template using the second template path. (*.ott This is one of the 
formats available when saving a file.)
      File > Templates > Organize Templates.
 Double click the My Templates folder to open it. Your template should appear under My Templates 
folder. If not, right click My Templates and select, Import Templates. Browse to where you saved 
your template, and select it. Now it should be visible. Now, right click your template. Select Set 
as Default. Close LO. Any time you open Writer, you will be using the template you have just 
created. Title will be available all the time.
