Can't save Font changes to my template (or any template)

I've tried several ways after searching, including one that's supposed to
be for the latest LibreOffice. It's writer I want to change since I don't
use the others. Also I try to set the paragraph spacing the way I want and
it won't stick. A footer with page number will stick.

Every time I set up "My Template" or try to edit the derfault Template to
get rid of Liberation serif which I dislike, to Arial, it changes itself
back on subtitle, etc.. Even if I save a file set up the way I want and
open it, the default fonts have changed. I've spent an hour trying to find
a way to create a template or even a file, making a desktop shortcut so I
can open that file as a template, and nothing works.

Does someone know how to change the default Template permanently and then
how to pin that one to the taskbar permanently?

File → Templates → Save as template → check the option "set as default
template" *should* work... except when you are creating your documents not
from within LibO, but with a right click on the desktop/file manager: the
template used in that action is not the template used by LibO, that
template is installed in the system and needs to be changed independently.
Which OS are you using? (I guess Windows, in which case I cannot help you
more, sorry).

Regards,
Ricardo

Hi Peggy,
You have to alter the styles in order for the model to behave
correctly. Create a blank Writer document, then set it up the way you
want by changing the "Default Style" to Arial with proper paragraph
spacing, etc. Make sure you change the parent style if you want your
change to be propagated to the others. One easy way of seeing which are
parent styles, you can open the Styles and Formatting side bar and
switch to hierarcchical view (drop down at the bottom of the side bar);
one other way is to go to the Organizer tab of the style and to look at
the "Inherit From" setting.
Once you are happy with the setup, go to File -> Templates -> Save as
Template like Ricardo indicated (do not forget the "Set as default"), I
usually put the new template in "My Templates". Then - to be really
sure - just close and re-open LO. When you select Create New Writer
document, your new template with your new settings should be used.
I hope this helps.
Rémy.

Hi Peggy,

In addition to the advice given by Ricardo and Rémy, I suggest you take
a look at the recently updated documentation:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications#Getting_Started_with_LibreOffice
Chapter 3 - Using Styles and Templates
and
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Documentation/Publications#LibreOffice_Writer_Guide
Chapter 10 - Working with Templates

To pin to the taskbar: Once you have created and saved your template,
open the "/Template Manager/", select your template and click the
"Export" button.

Choose your desktop to save the exported copy of your template, then
right click and drag the desktop icon to the taskbar.

Hope this helps.
Dave

Hi Peggy.
I think one factor you are missing is in relation to styles.
When you customise a document before making it a template you need to
consider the font in the styles that you use.

You mention that "it changes itself back on subtitle, etc ". In the
paragraph styles list you need to right click on each style that you use
and set the font there to Arial.  Also look in the organiser tab and see
which is the "Next Style" and change the font in that style also.

You should then be able to save that document as the default style as
others have mentioned.

Steve

I think that did it, Steve. Thank you so much!
