Please, consider set the default file format when I do Save As. See

It would be very convenient Save As file format coincides with the default.
No, the dialog is in Tools -> Options -> Load/Save ->
General: Default File Formats and ODF settings
There the default for all modules can only be set to one single
type-- Text, HTML, Master, Spreadsheet, Presentation, Drawing,
Formula. And with that set, the document will Save or Save-As the
format selected for that single type.
However, documents of type other than the selected will remain with
LibreOffice Default ODF formats.
It works correctly in 4.4.1 and current master.
I think I can see what the original questioner is asking. The
relevant settings (at Tools | Options... | Load/Save | General |
Default file format and ODF settings | Always save as) are of course
respected when saving a file for the first time. Although this is
necessarily in effect a Save As..., users will generally use Save and
think of this as a Save operation, not a Save As... .
The situation in which they expect to use Save As... is when saving a
new copy of an existing file, quite possibly with the precise purpose
of selecting a different file format. Here the default format in the
Save As dialogue appears to be the existing file format, not that set
in Options. The questioner wants the Options selection to be the
default here too. Perhaps he receives .odt and .ods files from others
and uses Save As... to save copies in .doc and .xls formats.
I make no comment on the desirability of any change. But I do suggest
that using Microsoft Office file formats as standard is not the best
way to use LibreOffice. If you keep ODF as the default and save
copies in foreign formats only when necessary, you preserve more of
