Welcome to LQ. OpenOffice.org settings can be configured through menu > Tools > Options. If that's not what you had in mind, please explain what "the dfaults I want" means to you.

I have tried that and it does not let me make a permanent change to the default type face that comes up when I open OpenOffice. I also tried the Menu > Files > Templets sequence and was only able to create a new templet configured the way I wanted it. What I wanted to do was change the default document templet to come up the way I wanted it. I tried the OpenOffice.org Help menu with no success also. What it suggested did not work.
