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.
If you will follow Steve's description yes, because there the first
sheet has got a direct formatting. But that does not change the general
setting and the new sheet will have the general setting with Arial.
If you will follow my guide, the new sheet will have the new font,
because it is changed in style.
I usually also set my favorite number formats in the style. And I set
the language to 'none' and make a new style text_de and text_en with
language German and English respectively.
