There must be a difference of how LO handles a text file when it
opens it vs when it inserts it.

I'm new to Libre Office but I read how you can create your own
default font style and size so a blank document will open to that
default style and size. I'm trying to set Libre Writer so that when
I open a saved plain text (.txt) file it opens to my created default
style and size. Right now it opens to Preformatted Text - Courier
New 10 point. I've visited Styles and Formatting and right clicked
on Preformatted Text and chosen Modify and changes the font to
Bookman Old 12 point and clicked Apply, then OK. I then reopened
Preformatted Text style and it indeed displays my chosen font and size.
However, still when I open a saved plain text file it opens to
Preformatted Text but with Courier New 10 point - not the Bookman
Old 12 point I chose and saved. Would anyone know if you can open
saved plain documents to a desired font style and size or are you
always stuck with Courier New 10 point whenever you open a plain
Stop and think about your question. If Writer were to do what you
wanted, it would do this for all text files. That means you might
later create a text document with several custom styles in it.
Opening this document in Writer would remove all these styles. This
is not a good idea.
I think you've missed the point here. The questioner is asking about
opening *plain* text files. Yes: he wants to control the automatic
paragraph style which Writer chooses for all plain text files opened
in this way. The text files containing custom styles that you are
describing are formatted text (Writer) files - probably in .odt
format. (No doubt he will save his new documents in that format after
he has edited them.) Opening such .odt documents does not impose
Preformatted Text paragraph style on anything, of course.
