How to make Garuda as default font in Libre Office?


Using: Mint 16 Mate.
Using: Libre Office Version: 4.2.4.2 Build ID: 420m0(Build:2)
I've never been able to find out how to change the default document font to another such as Garund in any version of Open Office or it's derivatives. Can anyone splain it to me pleeeez?

Create you own template and make your preferred font the default in that template. It's been a while since I created my own template, but, if I remember correctly, create an empty document with your formatting choices, then File-->Save As-->Open Document Template (*.ott). You can then make it your default template (how to do this changed between v. 3 and v. 4--see the help for details).

I created my own template because I really really really do not like the default tab stops and list formatting in OOo/LO.

I believe that Ahuka has addressed this in one of his LibreOffice series at Hacker Public Radio.

Thanx frankbell but thats kind of harder than just changing the font each time I write something.
LQQKing more for a menu type item that will automatically put my font of choosing in the font name window insteD OF 'liberation Serif'
You guys always stear me to the right places!!!
Discovered this in meantime aye!?!
http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/7668
and I corrected it here:
Menu|Tools/Options/LibreOfficeWriter/BasicFontsWestern
select from dropdown list and "OK" to finish and next time 'LibreOffice' was started mine showed the change to automatic Garuda.

You could try changing the font selection, then saving it to your default template, but, in my experience, OOo/LO are not as willing to allow changes to the default template as MSWord is to allow changes to normal.dot.
