Does anybody know where Openoffice saves its configuration for standard font, size etc?

I know i can create a template which gets used as a standard for new documents, but how do i get the location of this template? could not find it in the registry? and there is no default name like MSWord's normal.dotm, Any idea?

The default configutration/modification file is located at


The file is in XML format and is writtern in one line, therefore difficult to read.

Search for

<item oor:path="/org.openoffice.Office.Writer/DefaultFont">

And you can find the default font value for OpenOffice Writer
