I was wondering if there is a system-wide document template that overrides a
user's default template when opening plain text files. If there is one, I
will change it.

LibreOffice Writer just ignores my default template when opening plain text.

Try creating a new style and saving your document as your default template.
The new style is gone if you open a plain text file.


I thought that Regina had helped you resolve this issue, but...

Yes, there is a global default template, but it is hard wired (coded)
into the software. That is what the user's default or any other template

Unless there is something extremely abnormal about your plain text file,
the user default or any other template used definitely will format plain
text as set in the template. So the question is:
Are you setting the default template as described here?:
and in chapter 10 of the Writer User Guide here:

I am cc'ing you with an example template (the list server normally
strips attachments). You do not have to install or do anything special
with it. Simply open it in Writer and then use the "Insert -> File..."
menu option to insert any plain text file. Your text should appear in
some ugly blue font, with double spaced lines centered on the page.

Please write back to the list and let us know if this works for you.
