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.

The answers that you have been given - to create a new default template in the required font - are good, of course. But you may like to check what happens if you start a new document using this template and then create new sheets within the document. I fear you may find that the font defaults back to Arial.

I trust this helps.

Yes I remember. The change to the font only sticks to the first sheet with my explanation.
You need to follow Regina's procedure and it works ok.

Take an new document.
Open "Styles and Formatting" window. Right click style "Default", then
Goto tab "Font" and choose your favorite font. OK.
Save the document as template.
Set this template as your default template.
