Custom Default Font in LibreOffice

 A reader wants some help customizing LibreOffice.

“I installed Libre Office, and I was able to get the font I like as my default but not the size.  Is there a way to do this? Also, the spacing looks like it’s 1-1/2 spaces, not a single space. Would appreciate your help.”

Let’s start by changing your default font and size. Open LibreOffice Writer and click Tools on the menu at the top. Then select Options from the drop-down menu.

Scroll down to LibreOffice Writer and click the + sign.

Choose Basic Fonts.

At the right, you’ll have the option to choose your default font and size.

Make your choice from the drop-down menus.

Don’t forget to click on Apply to save.

The default line spacing in LibreOffice is 120% of the size of the font you’re typing. To change it, Press F11. When the pane opens on the right, Right-click on Default Paragraph Style and choose Modify.

Scroll down to Line Spacing and select your preferred spacing from the drop-down menu. Don’t forget to click Apply.
