How to Set Default Fonts In LibreOffice

LibreOffice is the most popular open-source office suite out there, not only you can install LibreOffice on your windows pc but can even run it on your Linux machines natively, in fact, it might already be preinstalled on your Linux machine, I love it! but something I am not really a fan of is the default font “Liberation Sans” font.

So I like it change it to something like Arial! And in this article, I’ll tell you exactly How to set Default Fonts in LibreOffice. So open your LibreOffice Writer, and let’s get started!

1. On the ribbon bar select “tools” and select “Options” from the dropdown list,

2. A new window will open. Now expand the LibreOffice writer section by clicking that little plus sign, then click on “Basic fonts (western)”

3. To change the font click on that little arrow beside the default section, and select whatever font you like, for the demonstration I will select Arial.

Note: In Windows laptop, all fonts that you have installed on your machine will be displayed in libre office

4. Now finally click “apply” then press “okay”.

And you are done! You can try closing the current document and reopening a new document to see the changes!
