Select Commands button drop down menu and select Set as default template.

New calc sheets now open with your font (and other) settings.

I am having a problem setting the default font in calc. This is usually not an issue, as I often start a new sheet from an existing sheet. But if I start from the first menu, I get a font called 'arial' (sounds like a mermaid or m$). Since I am using an oss program, i would prefer to use an oss font, e.g. freesans. per help, I an supposed to open a Write sheet and set the font in the 'tools' section. This works for write, not for calc.



Thank you for your step by step instructions.  A Couple of problems:
There is no file->templates menu selection. There is is 'file->save as template' and 'file->templatemenu'. There is also no 'file->templates->organize, or any organize under either of the 2 menu selections that I found. I was able to execute the beginning steps, but I was unable to save as default template. It seems that you are using a different os or versions than I am. imltho (less than), this is a bug, as a common user interface is crucial to user, newbies (of which I am not one) and developers.

I'll play arround some more. I think you've got me on the right track. When I went to save the file under 'save a template', there was already a 'default' file there.


Hi. I think as Regina points out, your version and mine differ, but you seem to be on the right track.
