I type a lot and i like to have the background black and the text a soft green or gray. I can see how to change the background and text color for one document but i would like to set this up as the default so when I open up a new document I can just start typing and dont have to make any adjustments. Anyone know how to save these settings? I cant seem to find it.

I've described this for setting the default font in LibreOffice including Screenshots of every step. The same works for OpenOffice. In short:

  1. Create a document containing the customized styles;
  2. Save that document as template;
  3. Set the document as standard template.

perfect does everything i need, opening the program fresh or opening a new document uses the saved template, thanks – fightermagethief Jul 30 '11 at 18:46
